Trends in Prevocational Education for the Deaf. Training Manual. A Report of the Workshop for Improving Instruction for the Deaf. (Ball State Univ., Muncie, Ind. July -August 11, 1967).
The workshop participants who prepared this vocational report were working representatives of residential day schools for the deaf as well as integrated public school classes for deaf pupils. The age level toward which the materials were directed was determined at between 12 and 15 years of age, a period of transition for many deaf youth. The prevocational committee had two major tasks to perform during the 5-week workshop: (1) preview as many audiovisual materials as time permitted and annotate those selected as being of good quality, and (2) prepare broad curriculum guidelines implementing basic objectives of prevocational education that could be utilized by teachers in any of the above named types of classes for the deaf. The areas of prevocational activity included (1) home economics, (2) graphic arts, and (3) wood, metal, electricity, and industrial handicrafts. Related documents are VT 005 013 and VT 005 014. (CH)
