Contributing Editor Patricia Lennon Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf, Mill Neck, NY Classroom Reading Instruction K-5 Alternative Approaches Book Copyright 1977, Paperback Subject: Language and Reading Age range of students who used the materials 5-7 Educational achievement range of students who used the materials: Grades K-3 This book presents a variety of language/reading ideas through a teacher log format. These ideas are flexible, practical, and integrate reading instruction with language development as a whole. Children respond with enthusiasm to most activities . I find the activities and suggested approaches , which are language based and child centered, appropriate in work with young hearing -impaired children. Since the book combines a phonics and a sight word approach, I can select those that are less phonics based. For more information contact D.C. Health and Company, 125 Spring St., Lexington, MA 02173.

Great Deaf Americans Book Copyright 1981, Paperback Subject: Reading Age range of students who used the materials: 15-17 Educational achievement range of students who used the materials: Grades 4-7 An anthology of biographies of the American people who have made strides in all areas of life in spite of their deafness. My sophomore class has put together a retrieval chart that traces the lives of the people presented in this book. Some of the relationships they have noticed are the achievements these people have made and how these achievements affect them. It is a book filled with interesting facts and it makes these people real to the students. When they learned that Bob Panara, the author, is deaf as well, they read with increased fervor. Refer to "Teacher to Teacher" of the June '84 Annals for additional information. For more information, contact TJ. Publishers, Inc., 817 Silver Spring Ave., 305-D, Silver Spring, MD 20910.

Edu-cards—Presidents of the United States Flash Cards Copyright 1975 Subject: Social Studies Age range of students who used the materials: 12-15 Educational achievement range of students who used the materials: Grades 5-7 Thirty-eight 3" X 6" colorful cards, each one depicting a U.S. president by photograph or painting, political party, personal data, signature , and significant life and administrative events. Idea pamphlet with seven game ideas for classroom use is included. My class enjoyed using these cards in an historical time line that we developed by hairstyle and dress, and by defunct and current political parties—without looking at actual administration dates. We also used them as research tools with the students trying to find the correct president in answer to specific questions (historical events, decades and personal presidential facts) and we used them to answer questions on a presidential trivia game board.

Can be used with any age. Filmstrip is not captioned and the accompanying guidebook comes written in three levels (general, basic, advanced ). These are received on a weekly basis.

This is an excellent tool to use...
