Welcome to Bridges Canada!
Explore Your Community is a full-year curriculum for transition students stressing essential skills for successful independent living. The 24 lessons cover transportation, shopping, dining, banking, and recreation. Students participate in a consistent lesson sequence: answer anticipatory questions, study vocabulary, read an illustrated essay, watch a step-by-step video, follow a photo sequence, practice social skills, complete a comprehension test, and act out role plays.
The student book is heavily illustrated to support struggling readers. The Instructor's Guide has role play scenarios, teaching tips, and problem-solving discussion questions. The guide also includes a Win/Mac CD with PDF files of student materials for printouts and an electronic Image Library to create communication overlays and additional assignments.
The Community Explorer live-action DVD shows each community activity step by step with narrators highlighting important points and relevant social skills.
