Abbas, Elizabeth K., Ed.; Sitlington, Patricia L., Ed.
The document opens with a 14-page state of the art review discussing influences which affect educators who prepare personnel involved with special needs students. These influences include: professional dissatisfaction; leadership groups, including legislative bodies and professional organizations; current issues and trends, including career education, mainstreaming, and competency based teacher education; and a number of specific influences that affect teacher education. The abstract section of the document is divided into the following topics: (1) issues and trends in vocational and special education (books, papers, and articles covering: some issues in vocational education, mainstreaming--alternatives to special education classes, and the new school population--the severely handicapped); (2) selected programs for special needs students (mostly descriptions of programs); (3) issues in the area of competency based teacher education (including competency based teacher education, competency identification for vocational teacher education, and competency identification for special teacher education); and (4) existing university-level personnel preparation programs (giving program descriptions, location, and contact person). Each abstract includes the title, author, publication, and date. A glossary of terms used in special education and vocational education is included. (EC)
