Business Cards for Learning BrailleBy Fanning, Floy; RE:view, Vol. 35, No. 4, p. 161
Publication Date: Winter 2004
Article discusses a method of teaching a first-grade student who is blind to read and spell words in Braille. The instructor punched holes in the top left-hand corners and cut off the top right-hand corners of old business cards. Then, the instructor Brailled and printed the words that he was learning to read and spell on the cards, and attached a metal ring to a clamp that could be attached to the student’s book bag or to one of the belt loops on his pants. The homemade tutorial was ideal for learning when the student had free time, such as when he was riding the bus to and from school.
