点字教科書編集資料に見る我が国の点字教科書30年の歩み : 小学部国語科を中心に

Thirty years of Braille textbooks in Japan, seen in Braille textbook editing materials with a focus on the Japanese language copurse in elementary school
This study traced the history of “Braille elementary school textbook editing materials" issued by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, Sports, and Technology between 1974 and 2005. The purpose was to explore the best ways to edit Braille textbooks in the future. The results showed that consideration based on the special characteristics of blind children had been given in the Japanese language course with the introduction of Braille touch reading, Braille notation, and instruction in Chinese characters and words of Chinese origin. In the future we expect that an increasing number of blind children will study in regular elementary schools, so that it will be necessary to issue Braille textbook editing materials that can be obtained by anyone, make booklets of separate teaching materials to introduce Braille touch reading, and provide supplementary books for Braille notation and Chinese character study.
