An Administrator's Manual for Planning, Developing, and Implementing Mainstream, Self-Contained, or Co-op Programs for the Disadvantaged.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Div. of Occupational and Vocational Studies.
This administrator's manual contains guidelines for planning, developing, and implementing mainstream, self-contained, or cooperative work experience programs for the disadvantaged. Outlined in the introductory section are the philosophy underlying programs for the disadvantaged, procedures to determine student eligibility, signals indicating the need for a program, the main features of each program and ways to determine which program is most suitable for a given situation, safety and accident-prevention practices, student organizations, and steps in organizing a vocational program for the disadvantaged. Then the mainstreaming approach to dealing with the disadvantaged is described, with special emphasis on program advantages and disadvantages, curriculum, and teacher qualifications. Covered in a discussion of self-contained programs are the main features of such programs, their advantages and disadvantages, curriculum, type of school, suggested fields of training, physical facilities, and teacher qualifications. The same points are considered in an examination of cooperative work experience programs. Appended to the manual are a director of state and federal offices and organizations involved in educating the disadvantaged and instructional techniques for disadvantaged students. (A related report on a project to implement employability, reading, and math skills in vocational education is available separately--see note.) (MN)
