The first of a three volume series is a handbook of approximately 95 student and teacher developed individual and class activities for learning disabled students in grades 6 through 12. The activities are arranged under the following main headings: "Things We Forget to Teach," such as how to make emergency phone calls; "Do You Know What I Mean?" which includes activities such as "Why Symbols" or "Goofy Sentences"; "Extraordinary Ordinaries" (e.g., "Creative Seeing"); and "You Tricked Me into Multiplying" (math activities such as "Multiplication Wheels"). Activities to develop a student's specific skill are arranged in the subject index for the following topics and subtopics: language arts (writing, listening, and speaking skills); life skills (following directions, study skills, survival, public relations/family living, self concept/valuing, thinking, time concepts, directionality, eye-hand coordination, logical sequencing, problem solving/decision making, strategy, and visual/auditory memory); math (consumer, general, and math variations); reading (word attack, vocabulary, comprehension, enrichment); and social studies (history, geography, economics, vocational). Each activity is presented according to materials needed, procedure, and sometimes, additional notes. (MC)
