Prepare Yourself to Serve Exceptional Students. Module L-1 of Category L--Serving Students with Special/Exceptional Needs. Professional Teacher Education Module Series.
Wonacott, Michael E.
This module, one in a series of performance-based teacher education learning packages, focuses on skills that vocational educators and other occupational trainers need to create learning environments that are accessible, accommodating, and equitable in meeting instructional needs of exceptional students. The purpose of the module is to give educators skill in defining their roles in serving exceptional students, in reviewing their attitudes, and in gaining greater experience with people who have exceptional needs. Introductory material provides terminal and enabling objectives, prerequisites, necessary resources, terminology, and general information. The main portion of the guide includes three learning experiences based on the enabling objectives. Each of the first two learning experiences includes educational activities with information sheets, case studies, and self-evaluation forms. Optional activities are also provided. Completion of the first two study sections should lead to achievement of the terminal objective administered in the third and final learning experience that includes a teacher-performance assessment form.
