dc.description.abstract The goal of the present research study was to develop, test, and evaluate a unit of study covering the topic of structure and function of living things with special emphasis on the human body. The unit of study was designed for slow learners at the secondary school level. A teacher's guide integrated with student materials was also developed. Relevancy and appropriateness of subject matter and teaching approaches for slow learners were considered in the development of the unit of study. A group-paced teacher-directed approach was selected as the basic method of instruction. The effectiveness of the unit of study was measured, by determining the significance of difference between pretest and posttest scores of the students involved in the testing program. The effectiveness of the unit of study was also assessed by means of student and teacher responses on an evaluation instrument. en_US
