Cooperative Work Experience: An Annotated Resource Guide for Teachers of the Handicapped.
Herschbach, Dennis R., Comp.; And Others
This annotated resource guide designed to aid the vocational teacher of the handicapped contains over 300 citations, each with a short abstract. The resources are listed under seven major categories: (1) Aids for Educators lists 31 citations that relate to the teaching of specific handicapped groups, such as the mentally retarded or deaf, and a number of resources for general use with handicapped students as well as materials which will provide a theoretical and conceptual background for many of the problems encountered by the student. (2) Home and Community Resources (32 abstracts) includes items that should aid the teacher in developing a link between the school and the home and community. (3) The Life Skills section (78 abstracts) covers a wide number of life situations that are commonly encountered by the young adult ("coping skills" such as how to use credit, insurance, and banking services). (4) Related Skills is divided into two parts--resources relating to the development of basic language arts skills, (20 abstracts) and resources relating to the development of basic math skills (15 abstracts). (5) Career Awareness includes 35 citations that provide a variety of career exploration activities and materials for different student groups. These materials are suited for both group and individual instruction. (6) Job Entry and Adjustment includes 55 abstracts of materials designed to help students successfully enter and hold a job. Such topics as the interview, work attitudes, job safety, getting along with co-workers, and the pay check relate to nontechnical skills necessary for succeeding on the job. (7) Job Training includes 118 citations that relate to skill training in a number of selected occupational areas. These materials have been developed for use with handicapped students or their teachers. They are alphabetized by title within 24 occupational areas. The materials included in this section can be used to supplement on-the-job training either by outside self-study or in-class related work. Sources of additional resource materials and addresses of publishers and film distributors are included. (HD)
