Project C.H.A.N.G.E.: Concepts of Handicaps and Attitudes Need Guidance and Education. Primary Curriculum [K-3].
Smith, M. Sherry; And Others
The curriculum guide for Project CHANGE (Concepts of Handicaps and Attitudes Need Guidance and Education), designed to improve children's attitudes toward the disabled, presents lesson plans for children in kindergarten through Grade 3 divided into seven curricular units: normal health, senses, acceptance of individual differences, blindness, deafness, physical handicaps, and acceptance of handicapped people. Each unit is intended to be completed in 3 to 5 weeks with one activity per week. Lesson plans typically provide suggestions for simulation activities; use of filmstrips, movies, and books; class discussions; and guest speakers (usually disabled persons). Introductory information (repeated for each grade level) included procedural guidelines for program implementation. Units at each grade level are preceded by a unit outline which lists learning objectives and concepts. Lesson plans are organized to include information on activity name, learning objective, materials needed, and teaching procedure. Worksheets appropriate for reproduction are provided when called for in the lesson plans. (DB)
