Really Together Now! A Resource and Activity Guide for the Developmentally Disabled. Molehills Out of Mountains.
Barringer, M. D.; Kosal-Smither, C.
The booklet describes approaches to teaching a large group of severely developmentally disabled students. The book begins with a review of the circle time format intended to foster motivation through a sense of playfulness, novel items, and opportunities for student participation and response. A theme approach to planning is advocated, and examples of some popular units using the calendar are given along with corresponding activities (including circuses and St. Patrick's Day). A multidisciplinary effort is featured in the description of lesson plans on home living developed by a speech/language pathologist and an occupational therapist. Additional lesson and theme plans are offered for music, creative movement, and cooking. (CL)
