VEIT Project (Vocational Education Inservice Training): Training Modules. Volumes 1 [and] 2.
Regan, Madelyn K.; And Others
The instructor's manual for an inservice training program for teachers concerned with handicapped children is in two volumes comprising 42 modules in five sections: awareness of exceptionality, diagnosis and assessment, methods and materials, classroom management and organization, and use of resources. Each module is introduced by a color coded page which lists module title, objective, time required for the presentation (usually 30 minutes), equipment needed, materials to be duplicated, packet contents, and resources and references. Modules typically include an overview, information on any presession arrangements, detailed paraphrasing of the instructor's presentation, and sample handouts and transparencies. Sample modules include the following: simulations of test anxiety, hearing impairment, mental retardation, and orthopedic handicaps; matching reader ability and text through use of the cloze procedure; matching job duties and learner profiles; analyzing instructional materials; procedures for simplifying written communication; using the textbook as a learning tool; special considerations of hearing impairment, learning disabilities, and behavior disorders; motivational deficiency and positive reinforcement; constructive confrontations in the classroom; individualizing instruction; techniques for interaction such as recognizing feelings and clarifying issues; time management; instructional resources available in the school; and community resources. A final module consists of a followup sharing session by participants. A chart shows the scope and recommended sequences of all the inservice training moduels. (DB)
