Valuing the Diversity of Minority Handicapped Students. Module II.
Sadler, Anne; And Others
The second of five modules is designed to acquaint preservice teachers with the issue and plight of culturally diverse and handicapped students in the public education system. An initial section offers guidelines for a presession and describes organizational structure of the module. Three sessions, to be presented in 50 minute classes, cover attitudes that affect minority handicapped students academically and socially, characteristics of specific handicapping conditions, and teaching/learning strategies to enhance students academically and socially. Among the topics addressed are the following: effects of teacher attitudes; manifestations of mental retardation, learning disabilities, behavior disorders, physical disabilities, speech and language disorders, visual impairments, and hearing impairments; and development of sensitivity to handicapped and culturally diverse students. Sections for each class include an instructional plan, handouts/transparencies list, lecture material, references, and resources. Pre- and postassessment tests, a glossary, handouts, and transparency masters are also given. (SB)
