Preparing Teachers of Secondary Level Educable Mentally Retarded. Project Report No. 1.
Brolin, Donn; Thomas, Barbara
An interim report on the Stout State University model for training special class teachers to prepare secondary level educable mentally handicapped students for social and vocational adjustment is presented. Pertinent literature is reviewed; and the Stout State proposal which emphasizes academic skills and incorporates vocational education and rehabilitation in secondary level teacher preparation is described. Proceedings from a conference (Menomonie, Wisconsin, November 12-13, 1970), held to assist the Stout project staff in determining the efficacy of the model, include eight papers which deal with the needs of secondary level educable mentally handicapped students and competencies needed by their teachers. Conference questionnaire results are cited and the data is noted as having served as a basis for a field questionnaire sent to all teachers and administrators of secondary level educable mentally handicapped classes in Wisconsin. The data from the field questionnaire, when received, are considered by the author to be primary sources of curriculum study prior to preparing a secondary level special education teacher training program for Stout.
