Inservice Training Among Building Administrators and Vocational Education Teachers in Four Alaskan School Districts for Handicapped Students. Workshop Report.
Warden, John W.
The report presents information resulting from an inservice training workshop for vocational education teachers and administrators in Alaska on working with handicapped students. Among the problems perceived by teachers and administrators were inadequate understanding of state and federal laws, increasing class size, lack of inservice training, and lack of interagency cooperation. A pilot workshop was developed with an agenda based on several priority areas. Other workshop models were developed along a four phase approach (awareness, reassurance, problem definition, and problem resolution) with modules focusing on developing a general understanding, developing a positive attitude, serving specific handicapped students, and developing a plan for action. Appendixes include a consultant report and revised agenda; a listing of workshop materials; a list of vocational/special education workshop participants; a sample workshop evaluation form; an evaluation summary; and an outline of teacher skills in the following areas: instructional and program design; program management; collaboration and liaison; instructional methods; assessment, diagnosis, and evaluation; materials; guidance and counseling; knowledge; and research.
