Career/Vocational Education in the Individual Education Plan: Teacher Preparation and Application Strategies.
Gruber, Susan E.; And Others
A career/vocational education training module was developed based on a needs assessment of 2,000 secondary teachers of emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and educable mentally retarded in Wisconsin. Concepts included in the module were historical factors, definitions, implications for the handicapped, models for implementation, assessment, materials and resources, and the development of the individualized education program (IEP). Among activities were performing a needs assessment of each participant's current school situation and program, incorporating career/vocational concepts into IEPs by adapting goals and objectives from existing curriculum guides. Application of the model in three sites (Milwaukee secondary, Chicago secondary, and Chicago postsecondary) is reviewed. (CL)
