Preschool Curriculum Guide.
Gallaudet Univ., Washington, DC. Kendall Demonstration Elementary School.
The curriculum guide is intended to provide a strong, comprehensive preschool program for children with hearing impairments at the special school, the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (District of Columbia). The curriculum offers the following: (1) necessary routines for organizing the school day; (2) intensive, ongoing use of language--written, spoken, and signed; (3) ample opportunities for effective communication, both expressive and receptive, with peers and adults; and (4) an initial understanding of mathematics, science, and social studies concepts. The initial chapter provides an introduction to the program including the school philosophy and parent role. Outlined next are the scope and sequence of the preschool objectives for language, language arts, social studies, mathematics, science, social-emotional development, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills. Instructional units are then detailed for older and younger groups including lesson plans which include objectives, main ideas, materials, procedures, and evaluation procedures. Five appendixes include a 31-item bibliography, the Kendall Communicative Proficiency Scale, a sample instructional unit demonstrating ways to incorporate speech and auditory training, a story unit showing the use of children's literature to teach content, and a sample science unit.
