Teaching Units for Consumer Home Economics. Topic: Mainstreaming Ideas for Special Needs Students.
Maineri, Sandra C.
This guide is intended to help high school home economics teachers to teach special needs students who are mainstreamed into their classrooms. It aims to familiarize teachers with types of disabilities and approaches for creating empathy among fellow students who are not disabled. Ideas for working with wheelchair bound and developmentally disabled students are explored, and the principles of work simplification and task analysis are defined. Simple lesson plans for instructing handicapped students in foods and nutrition and appropriate evaluative techniques are shared. Finally, a bibliography of current resources to aid the teacher in adapting lesson plans to student needs is included. It is intended that the teacher can develop many useable classroom ideas with the examples and techniques covered in this guide as a basis. (KC)
