Toward Competency. A Guide for Individualized Instruction. Student Edition. Revised.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem. Special Education Section.
The second part of a two-part publication, this material is designed to be used as a curriculum guide and progress record for the special education student who is unable to benefit fully from the regular school program. It presents goals and subgoals for students in six curriculum areas in grades one through twelve. The basic skills chapter includes gross motor skills, auditory discrimination, reading, study skills, and mathematics. The personal and social awareness chapter includes such areas as self, family, authority, and dependency. Living in the environment is divided into such subareas as animals, weather, clothing, budgeting, and postschool adjustment. Career education includes work habits and preparation for and exploration of work experiences. Human ecology includes health, safety, and physical education. The chapter on leisure time activities is divided into such areas as outdoor recreation, arts and crafts, and organizations. Goals and subgoals are presented in sequential steps. This edition differs from the teachers' edition by the inclusion of a grid for recording individual students' progress toward meeting subgoals and goals. Goals and subgoals are defined as performance outcomes a student is expected to achieve while enrolled in a special education program. (Author/JM)
