Braille FUNdamentals In UEB:
Middle School and High School Levels
Is Now Available!
BRAILLE FUNdamentals: Unified English Braille (UEB) is a comprehensive program for teaching the Braille code. The sequence for introducing the Braille configurations has been organized into 56 clusters of letters, numerals, contractions, short forms, punctuation and special signs, with specific clusters devoted to the reading and writing practice of previously learned contractions. Also included in this curriculum are a Pre-Braille Assessment, Braille Checklists and ideas for games. This program can be used with beginning Braille readers as well as those readers who need to learn Braille when they are older.
In an effort to incorporate current best practices in teaching reading and writing, a wide variety of age-appropriate activities are included at each level. Within each cluster an extensive set of instructional materials is included, in order to provide an adequate amount of ready-made materials. Additional information on the Middle School and High School curricula is available from the TSBVI Online Store.
