Modifying Vocational Curriculum for the Handicapped. Final Report.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
This final report provides detailed coverage of the progress of a project to meet the need of preparing vocational teachers and curriculum specialists for delivery of effective vocational education programs to the handicapped. It begins with six quarterly reviews of project activities, the main activities being (1) training of state vocational instructional program supervisors and state vocational "special needs" supervisors to train appropriate local education personnel in the use of a handbook for modifying existing vocational curricula to suit handicapped individuals and (2) development of a handbook for use by local vocational teachers and curriculum specialists in modifying existing curricula. Seven sample field tests to evaluate the handbook are provided as well as a field test report, including general comments and comments on individual chapters of the handbook. Next are presented the two consultant activities used to provide "state of the art" knowledge and an example of consultant feedback. The four national dissemination workshops for state education agency personnel in the areas of vocational and special education and guidance are then reported. Participant lists and evaluations from the Boston, Madison, Salt Lake City, and Atlanta workshops are provided. (The handbook, user's guide, and annotated bibliography developed by the project are available separately--see Note.) (YLB)
