Project SSAVE (Special Student Access to Vocational Education): Inservice Training Guide.
Cover, Roberta G.; And Others
An inservice training guide for teacher educators and State Department staff to use with teachers, administrators, and other personnel responsible for vocational training of special needs students is presented, as part of Project SSAVE (Special Student Access to Vocational Education), in Tennessee. The guide, which was based on the evaluation of materials and methods used in Project SSAVE's inservice training sessions, consists of four sections. Section 1, inservice training preparation, contains information on honoring requests for inservice training, identification of personnel to conduct training, development of the agenda, physical logistics, preview of the agenda, and implementation of the inservice. Section 2, teacher inservice training, contains the objectives, materials, and visuals to be used in conducting the actual inservice training activities. Section 3, administrator/counselor inservice training, contains the same basic materials as Section 2, but also has other materials relevant to this target population. Section 4, the appendices, contains documentation of materials that may be useful in developing alternative or additional inservice training activities. These appendices include transparency masters on P.L. 94-142, a list of nine audiovisual materials, and local concerns of workshop participants from nine Tennessee school districts. Objectives of the teacher inservice training include: providing information concerning the needs and characteristics of and services for special needs students; and promoting understanding of the individualized education plan and vocational options for special needs students.
