National Curriculum Development Project for Vocational Educators of Disadvantaged and Handicapped Students. Final Report.
Link Enterprises, Inc., Montgomery, AL.
The goal of the project was to train a nucleus of vocational educators in curriculum preparation and modification of instructional material to enable disadvantaged and handicapped students to achieve success in career preparation programs. Over 1200 vocational educators across the country participated in one-week workshops designed to achieve the project goal with the hope that this "nucleus" would train and assist colleagues in developing relevant, performance-based curriculum and learning materials. The Project was unique in these aspects: it was a united, concerted teacher-training and development effort conducted on a national scale; it was planned specifically for in-service training of teachers of disadvantaged and/or handicapped vocational students; it accomplished more than expected at less than anticipated cost; and, the training was conducted by personnel who were not faculty members of traditional teacher-training institutions. The Final Report describes pre-workshop planning and decisions, workshop activities with daily guides, followup activities, and "spin-off" activities. (SC)
