Metro College for Living. Workshop Packet.
Kreps, Alice Roelofs
This packet contains information and materials for conducting a training workshop for working with adults who are developmentally disabled. The materials are specifically designed to train volunteer teachers in the College for Living (CFL) program, which supplements residential programs in and around Denver and aids institutions in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Following a workshop agenda (section 1), section 2 provides job descriptions of CFL staff. Section 3, Requirements for Teaching in the CFL, contains a list of requirements, sample instructor materials, and management and first aid suggestions. The fourth section briefly discusses the history, present, and future of developmental disabilities. A list of definitions and a series of articles comprise section 5, on definitions and philosophies. The largest section, section 6, deals with teaching materials and techniques. It contains model lesson plan formats and articles on curriculum development, learning theory, instructional material selection and adaptation, instructional and performance objectives, role play, teaching reading to adults, classroom management, and teaching strategies and methods of instruction. Section 7, Taking Care of You, The Volunteer, includes materials dealing with assertive behavior and management skills. (A curriculum guide for fourteen courses and individual course guides are available separately. See note.) (YLB)
