Career Education for the Handicapped: Current Perspectives for Teachers.
Clark, Gary M., Ed.; White, Warren J., Ed.
Although interest in and literature about career education for the handicapped has been growing very rapidly in the last few years, many professionals have been hard pressed to keep pace with the knowledge explosion in the field. This book is intended to aid teachers in acquiring up-to-date knowledge of career education for the handicapped and methods for implementing it in their classrooms. The book can be used in two ways: (1) as a theoretical framework for teacher educators and as a text in preservice and inservice programs; and (2) as a practical framework to show the classroom teacher how to implement career education for the handicapped. The book is divided into three sections. The first section, Theoretical Foundations, covers the concept and the rationale of career education for the handicapped. In the second section, Implementation, curriculum considerations for various degrees of handicapping conditions are dealt with and methods teachers can use to implement career education in the schools are presented. The third section, Issues, includes discussions on selected problems in career education for the handicapped. Each chapter concludes with a bibliography, and materials for use as inservice training handouts or transparencies are included in the appendix. (KC)
