Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The curriculum guide is intended to prepare disadvantaged and handicapped, primarily educable mentally retarded, students for holding productive jobs. Emphasis is on developing in students the values and attitudes that are basic to the success of any worker. The guide is divided into five sections: pre-primary, primary, intermediate, junior high, and senior high. Given for each level are student characteristics, desired outcomes or goals stated in terms of observable and measurable behavior, behavioral objectives, and suggested learning activities. At the pre-primary and primary levels, development of proper attitudes, behavior, work habits, and skills is stressed. At intermediate and junior high levels, suggestions are made for using the classroom and school as a vocational learning laboratory (practice of vocational-related skills in class and application in specified work areas within the physical plant of the school). At the senior high level, emphasis is upon social requirements of young adulthood and supervised community work experiences. (KW)
