Kreps, Alice Roelofs; Dreith, Rita Vallero
One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series, this document provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Traveling II. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Goals for the course are for the student to gain confidence in using public transportation and to develop confidence in self as a resource. More specific objectives include the student's (1) riding a bus to a given point independently, (2) following a map to a given point, and (3) showing steps needed to take a bus by demonstration. Contents include an evaluation tool and outlines with suggested activities, discussions, and field experiences and trips for the twelve steps in this course: skills needed to ride a bus, methods of transportation, on a bus, review, how to find your way, reading maps, common sense rules, expand and explore, walking, walking and using a map with teacher, going for a walk with friends, and going by bus alone. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See Note.) (YLB)
