The Keeley Library also has Brittanica Junior Encyclopedia and Compton's Encyclopedia which might be useful for inclusion.

INCLUSION AIDS

The Mac computers in our Computer Writing Area all have Clarsworks installed. The text can be magnified for students with low vision. Some of the Macs also have Macintalk installed. Given adequate support staff, we could help students with low vision save files from the electronic encyclopedia to disk,and open them in Clarisworks. Clarisworks has a feature which lets you enlarge the size of the text on your screen, thus enabling vision impaired students to work with the information.   They might also listen to them using Macintalk.Videos and audio cassette tapes are also good for inclusion..For a list of new items cataloged each month, go to theKeeley Library Home Page.. Complete information for cataloged items is available at the Circulation Desk and through the SAILS online public access catalog.

USING CLOSED CAPTION FEATURE IN SOME PBS VIDEOS

 Use PBS Previews to locate programs with Closed Captioning, related web sites, and other features.

USING INTERNET PAGES OFFLINE FOR INSTRUCTION

Note:.Students who were absent on the day you used the web site can then make up this experience in class, or in the Keeley Library computer writing area using a downloaded version of a particular web site. 

FOR COMPUTER LITERACY, PROBLEM-SOLVING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS

Students who are working on projects can select parts of the pictures or text from the downloaded web page and/or video clips from the accompanying video to add to a Clarisworks document that will evolve into a Clarisworks Slide Show. It can be shown to the class for presentations. Cables can be hooked up to allow the Clarisworks Slide Show to be transferred to a video tape, which can then be brought home to show parents. Not all parents will have a computer, but most will have a vcr. These are but a few examples.
