New Braille Resources Now Available

Special Education Technology British Columbia (SET-BC) has developed some new resources to support emerging braille literacy using the Mountbatten Braille Writer (MB). These two new resources, written and designed by Graham Cook, a teacher of students with visual impairments in Peace River, British Columbia, are now available to view and download in Adobe pdf format on the SET-BC website at http://www.setbc.org/res/mbpro/default.html

The first resource, "MB Pro - The Second Generation Mountbatten Brailler-A Visual Guide", is a user-friendly learning and reference guide for teachers that covers the basic operations of the Mountbatten Pro Braille Writer. (53 page document)

The second resource, "MB Pro Braille Writer - Step by Step Introductory Lessons", is a series of lesson modules designed for beginning braille readers and writers, ideally K-1. Lesson plans include many detailed and creative activities for enhancing literacy development as well as concept development. Graham has used these lesson plans successfully with his students and they are shared as suggestions for teachers to adapt to suit the needs of their individual students. (168 page document)
