The Development of a Competency Based Professional Preparation Progam in Physical Education for Work with Handicapped Children. Final Report.
Harrington, Wilma M.; Engerbretson, David L.
The problem defined for this project was to develop a competency based physical education curriculum at the graduate level to prepare individuals to work with handicapped children in the regular class setting. General teaching competencies were adapted to meet the specific needs of teachers working with handicapped children. Current university courses were examined to determine which of the identified competencies were being met, and new courses were developed to help meet curriculum deficiencies. Evaluation strategies were established to measure demonstrable achievement of the specified competencies. Finally, appropriate university courses were developed into functional programs leading to either the Master of Arts in Teaching or Master of Science Degrees. The procedures used to achieve the objectives for this project, as well as the identified roles and competencies, curriculum sequence, and evaluation models are discussed in detail in this document. Course outlines for newly developed courses are appended. (JD)
