A Color Motion Picture Film to Aid in the Recruitment of Prospective Teachers for Exceptional Children. Final Report.
Fudell, Stanley E.
A 28-minute professional recruitment film aimed at teenagers, college freshmen and sophomores, women seeking a second career, teachers, and the lay public was developed to attract more candidates into special education teacher preparation. The film, which shows all types of handicapped children in classroom and camp settings, gives a positive picture of exceptional children and special education. The story line revolves around a teen age boy sky diver who becomes involved with a 10-year old retardate and his pretty sister, and proceeds to the parachutist's acceptance of the retarded boy and his experiences as a counselor in a camp for the retarded. The film is loaned free by the National Medical Audio Visual Center of the Public Health Service in Chamblee, Georgia. (LE)
