Vocational Education/Special Education Program Guide.
Central Michigan Univ., Mount Pleasant.
This program guide is a supplement to the occupational cluster guides (CE 001 286-295) and contains in detail the background, philosophy, and descriptive information needed for their successful implementation. An introductory section discusses teaching children with special needs, emphasizing ways of matching teaching methods to the particular problem area. Guidelines are presented for organizing, planning, and developing cooperative teaching programs, and a model is described. The roles of vocational and special education in planning are outlined. The culminating point of the planning stage is the development of instructional task modules, which can then be localized to fit the employment needs of a particular area and personalized to fit individual teacher-student situations. Guidelines are offered for monitoring student progress; additional program components and supportive services are outlined for the optimum development of a comprehensive program. Seventy pages consist of a teaching guide for 26 employment task modules comprising a core of skills basic to employment in any occupation. A 20-item bibliography, an instructional materials code, and listings of employment-related and task-related competencies complete the document. (SA)
