Abstract

This report was prepared as an aid to teachers and library resource personnel in their search for commercially produced learning materials which might be used to help meet the needs of senior educable mentally retarded students. -- The annotated listing of materials involved the previewing of more than one hundred different items, although most items are non-print. When evaluating materials, consideration was given to the suitability of materials for use in small groups or in independent learning situations. -- The report is essentially a selection tool or guide presented as an appendix of eight sections. Section I is an introduction to the guide. Section II outlines the evaluation criteria used when previewing. Section III is a key to abbreviations used in the guide. Section IV is an annotated bibliography of recommended instructional materials. Section V is a listing of recommended materials by subject area. Section VI is a directory of producers and suppliers. Section VII lists general commercial selection aids that contain reports on instructional materials that have been evaluated and rated. Section VIII is an annotated bibliography of previewed materials that were considered unsatisfactory for senior EMR students.
