MILE Curriculum [and Nine CD-ROM Lessons].
This curriculum on money management skills for deaf adolescent and young adult students is presented on nine video CD-ROMs as well as in a print version. The curriculum was developed following a survey of the needs of school and rehabilitation programs. It was also piloted and subsequently revised. Each teaching segment is presented in sign language by a deaf instructor. If appropriate, visual aids are also used. At the end of the segment, the teacher signs a question that probes student learning of the new information and the question appears on the screen with multiple response options. Student response results in either positive feedback and continuation to the next segment or a review of the relevant information and a repeat of the question. Each CD contains six or seven lessons relating to a particular topic. Each lesson includes an introduction, the body of the lesson, and a generalization exercise. The print workbook covers the same material and also includes a glossary, an answer key, and additional information. The nine CDS cover: (1) reading money amounts, (2) writing money amounts, (3) recognizing and reading bills, (4) the bank, (5) bank deposits, (6) bank withdrawals, (7) the deposit slip, (8) recording deposits in the check register, and (9) check writing.
