Mainstreaming: The Role of Industrial Education.
Steczak, Cheryl; Shackelford, Ray L.
This guide is intended to help industrial education teachers and administrators to "mainstream" handicapped students into regular industrial education classes. The booklet introduces the concept of mainstreaming, relates it to industrial education, and defines various handicapping conditions, such as physical handicaps, visual and hearing handicaps, mild mental retardation, and emotional handicaps. It then offers specific suggestions for teaching students with various conditions and adapting the environment to their needs. Principles are enumerated for the educator preparing special needs students to enter the work world; techniques for evaluating the vocational curriculum and the special needs learner are presented; and a sample vocational curriculum for the special needs learner is included. The guide contains nineteen suggested industrial education activities for the special needs learner, as well as a list of resources for the vocational educator. (KC)
