A Resource Manual for the Development and Evaluation of Special Programs for Exceptional Students. Volume IV-B: A Training Manual for Teachers of the Homebound/Hospitalized Student.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Bureau of Education for Exceptional Students.
The manual is intended to help Florida teachers of homebound or hospitalized children cope with the unusual demands of the position. Difficulties faced by such teachers are noted, including low student motivation, parents' need for support, and a setting not conducive to learning. A brief history of homebound educational services is followed by an analysis of Florida services to this population. Special teacher characteristics are considered. Regulations are cited along with recommendations for practice in providing instructional programs. Among aspects considered are socialization, peer relationships, home emotional climate, testing, scheduling, the instructional environment, graduation and grade requirement, referral to special programs or additional services, and coping with traumatic events. Final sections touch on parent involvement and program evaluation. (CL)
