Final Report of the Evaluation of the Summer 1970 Exploratory Vocational Training Program for Physically Handicapped and Mentally Retarded Pupils. ESEA Title I.
Teaching and Learning Research Corp., New York, NY.
The general goal of this summer program, funded under Title I, Elementary and Secondary Education Act, was to provide an instructional-vocational program which would meet the needs of handicapped students. Specifically, the program set out to: (a) provide experiences in shop areas which will provide in manipulation of materials and contribute to growth in motor control and manual dexterity; (b) provide experiences in group interaction in shops and opportunities for following through on individual and group projects which will contribute to growth in self-direction; and, (c) provide opportunities for success and achievement in exploration of new media, materials, and equipment. The evaluation was performed by a collection of information from parents, teachers, and students, and by observations by evaluation staff members of shop settings and activities. Teachers rated students at two intervals in the program, once on the seventeenth of July and again on August thirteenth. Students who were able to write filled out questionnaires. The others were interviewed by project staff members. Parents also filled out questionnaires. Teachers responded to a questionnaire at the termination of the program. (Author/JM)
