Project REACH: Knowing the Campers. Module 2. Appendix P-2. Camp Staff Training Series.
Vinton, Dennis A., Ed.; Farley, Elizabeth M., Ed.
The document presents the second of six modules resulting from a 3 year project to develop and test competency based programs for camp personnel serving the physically handicapped. The module provides information designed to alleviate many fears, misconceptions, and misunderstandings about the physically disabled. An introductory section gives an explanation of competency based instruction, a description of a module, and an overview of the camp director training program. Three module units address classifications and characteristics, determining attitudes toward disabled people, and assessment and placement. Each unit contains a content outline, performance objectives, and a list of related readings. Pre- and posttests are also given, as well as worksheets and a glossary of terms. It is explained that the competency based instructional format allows the reader to work through the module at his own pace, to test out of the instructional units, and to choose which learning activities to complete.
