Designed for use by teachers, coordinators, and consultants from occupational education and special education programs, the inservice resource guide presents a system for developing and managing instruction for secondary level special needs learners (students traditionally identified as handicapped or disadvantaged). Included are seven modules, each focusing upon one function in the development of instructional programs, and each including the following: (1) an introductory statement, (2) case studies describing special needs students and their teachers, (3) module goals statements, and (4) a description of the inservice experiences included in the module. Procedures for completing each inservice experience, resource materials, instructional planning forms, and completed example forms are provided for each of the 16 inservice experiences within the modules, as well as a self-evaluation checklist and resource bibliography for each module. Module topics are the following (inservice experiences are in parentheses): (1) learner identification and analysis (collecting learner identification information, developing a learner analysis profile, and developinq a learning prescription), (2) cooperative instructional arrangements (developing a cooperative instructional arrangement), (3) instructional resources (developing a special needs resource inventory and establishing and/or using a special needs advisory committee), (4) cluster and content analysis (identifying career clusters and conducting a career cluster analysis), (5) instructional planning (developing instructional modules/units and sequencing instruction), (6) instructional implementation (analyzing instructional materials, providing reinforcement and feedback, modifying the learning environment, and planning and coordinating work experience programs), and (7) evaluation of learner progress (developing a learner performance profile and conducting a learner followup survey).
