Methods and Techniques of Curricula and Instruction Which Are Most Effective in Training and Placement of Persons with Special Needs. Final Report.
Strohbusch, Mark D.
To determine the dimensions of an effective program for disadvantaged students in a post-secondary metals-related program, students, graduates, and recent dropouts of the metal programs in four selected vocational-technical schools were surveyed along with school directors, trade and industrial coordinators, metals teachers, and guidance personnel. Analysis of data from the interview questionnaires resulted in these conclusions: (1) The characteristics of a good program identified through this study can be useful to educators who are working with the disadvantaged, (2) Vocational-technical schools that work with disadvantaged students must be careful that their programs do not become too academic, and (3) The value of vocational training, judged by the disadvantaged students and dropouts, is generally found to be quite high. The major development resulting from the study is a guide for reviewing post-secondary vocational programs that serve disadvantaged students. The guide, which is appended, contains sections dealing with such aspects as recruiting students, counseling, program orientation, instruction, student activities, and placement. (SB)
