Work-Study Handbook for Educable Mentally Retarded Minors Enrolled in High School Programs in California Public Schools.
Campbell, L. Wayne; And Others
The handbook on work-study programs for educable mentally retarded (EMR) students in California public schools explains the nature and scope of educational-vocational programs. Information and guidelines offered are intended to help schools prepare EMR students more effectively and realistically for work, constructive citizenship, and active community participation. Educational and occupational needs of the students are identified and curricular patterns and sequences, including program objectives, in a work-study program are discussed. Suggestions are made for the administrative structure of the school district in conducting work-study operations. Responsibilities of both the district and the community in providing services are identified. Also discussed are job-simulation centers and areas of skill training, work-station selection and steps in job training, and the placement process. Relevant state legislation, graphic illustrations of job-simulation centers, forms, and other information are appended. (KW)
