Curriculum for Environmental Education of the Disabled (C.E.E.D.).
Abrams, William; And Others
The activities included in the Curriculum for Environmental Education of the Disabled (CEED) are based on current best-practices in the area of pollution prevention and address the following major areas: recycling, water and energy efficiency, transportation, citizenship, and outdoor appreciation. The activities emphasize the development of independent life skills that enable disabled students to contribute to and participate in their communities and function responsibly in the home environment. Each objective in the CEED has a corresponding Instructional Activity Profile which includes a list of relevant activities by developmental level. In addition to a complete description of each activity, the Instructional Activity Profile also provides a statement of the objective, curriculum correlation, environment where the activity might be performed, materials needed, key vocabulary words, possible alternative applications or "extensions" for the activity, and a list of resources. Contains 58 references. (DDR)
