Curriculum Process and Model Local Catalogs for Students with Moderate and Severe Handicaps. Revised. Kentucky Systems Change Project.
Hudson, Melissa E., Ed.; Kleinert, Harold, Ed.
This curriculum was developed to fulfill the need for a longitudinal, community-referenced curriculum for students in Kentucky with moderate and severe handicaps that could provide the basis for programming from the elementary level through completion of a student's school career. The curriculum consists of guideline chapters on how to use this curriculum process; a sample local catalog for primary students and one for intermediate/secondary students; and a master curriculum containing a master set of instructional objectives across both the primary and secondary levels and across the four instructional domains. The guideline chapters explain the local catalog curriculum approach and its limitations; discuss selection of priority activities for inclusion on the individualized education program; and offer suggestions on developing programs using basic skills in the context of age-appropriate priority activities. The two local catalogs are then presented, with each listing functional, age-appropriate activities typically engaged in by nonhandicapped peers across the four life domains: domestic, community/school, recreation/leisure, and vocational. Lists of sample short-term objectives are then provided, organized by domain. Appendixes contain a parent interview form, a peer survey form, and checklists of skills and activities. (JDD)
