Vocational Education for Students with Special Needs. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 6.
Appleby, Judith A.; Wheeler, Jeanette D.
One of five modules in the curriculum development series of the 16-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists, this module is intended for use in classes or individual study arrangements at the preservice or inservice level by students with varying amounts of experience in vocational education. (These modules are revised versions of earlier study guides--see note.) Introductory materials include an overview, instructions to the learner, detailed list of behavioral goals and objectives, and resources needed to complete learning activities. The module is divided into three sections, each based on one of the goals. The first section identifies barriers to equal education faced by special students and legislation to eliminate these barriers. The second section focuses on developing action plans including techniques for assessing and instructional methods for meeting needs of special students. In section 3 are provided procedures and guidelines to review and modify biased curricula, facilities, and materials. Each section follows a standard format: text, individual study activities, discussion questions, and group activities. A summary of the module follows. Appendixes include a fact sheet on sex stereotyping in measurement instruments, suggested responses to the study activities, a self-check, responses to the self-check, and recommended references.
