Development of a Vocational Education Curriculum for the High School Educable Mentally Retarded. Final Report. Summary.
Plue, William V.
In order to develop a curriculum especially for educable mentally retarded students at the high school level, this federally funded 1-year research project aimed to establish unique parameters involved in vocational adjustment for these students and to develop a tentative curriculum with this information. A literature review was conducted, and a research team interviewed supervisors, vocational counselors, students, former students, parents, employers, and teachers, collecting data from seven areas in Mississippi. A lack of adequate data for formulating appropriate vocational education curriculums for the mentally handicapped indicated a need for course development. A curriculum model was organized and learning activities developed around these three major areas: (1) the psychomotor domain, (2) social maturity, and (3) environmental factors. The research reports of this project are available as VT 018 484 and VT 018 485 in this issue. (AG)
