Mainstreaming the Handicapped in Vocational Education. Developing a Plan for Action.
One of a series of seven modules developed to improve the knowledge and skills of vocational educators who are or will become involved in the instruction of handicapped students in regular (mainstream) classes, this module is intended as a practical tool useful for instructing one or more handicapped students, along with nonhandicapped students, in regular vocational classes. (The module is meant to be used after the study of related modules in this series, which cover developing a general understanding, developing a positive attitude, serving the orthopedically handicapped, serving the mentally retarded, serving the visually handicapped, and serving the communication impaired.) In completing this plan for action, the author notes that it is assumed that the educator either has a particular student in mind, or has access to an information file that would be sufficient for making reasonable inferences and judgments about student needs and abilities. Each page of this module represents a step in the process; either in the planning of instruction, carrying out the instructional plan, or evaluating the outcomes of instruction. Key elements involved in each step are listed, and space is provided for write-in entries that fit the specific situation and student(s) involved. At the bottom of each page, room has been provided for comments by administrators, workshop coordinators, or professors engaged in preservice or inservice training. (Author/HD)
