Vocational Resource Educator Handbook.
West, Lynda L.; And Others
Designed for Vocational Resource Educators (VRE) in Missouri, this guide contains basic information to aid VRE in helping handicapped students succeed in vocational education programs. The handbook is structured according to the eight goals for VRE, which define their major roles and responsibilities: to develop a communication network, to facilitate the mainstreaming process, to assist in appropriate program placement, to assist vocational instructors with curriculum modification, to serve as a resource to vocational instructors, to provide job placement and followup, to provide inservice for other staff, and to evaluate a VRE program. For each goal, an overview leads to questions and answers that may be translated into objectives and activities needed to accomplish that particular goal. Resources (articles, checklists, directories, sample forms and materials, inventories, informative materials) and additional reference material are provided for each goal. A glossary is attached. Appendixes include informative materials dealing with handicapped persons, legislation, mainstreaming, the cloze procedure accompanied by references of special-needs resources. (YLB)
