Werner, Nancy; And Others
Intended for Iowa special education teachers, the document contains a model senior high school special education course of study which emphasizes survival skills and the affective needs of students. Following an introductory section, on the course of study's rationale, are four color coded sections each addressing a specific population/educational setting. Section I focuses on the multidisabled, educable mentally disabled, emotionally disabled, and learning disabled in special classes with partial integration. Section II is on the special self contained class for the emotionally disabled. A third section describes the self contained class for trainable mentally disabled while a final section considers severely and profoundly handicapped in self contained special classes. Each section begins with the definition of the population to be served, definition of the programs and services model, characteristics of study courses, areas of study to be included, and educational outcomes. Areas of study outlined for each population include the following: career education, reading/language arts, mathematics, physical education, science/health, social studies, positive affect, daily life competency, leisure skills, vocational education, communication, functional academics, and social living. Courses within areas of study are outlined in terms of course title, grade level, course description, student objectives, and student expectations. In addition, a sample competency and attendance record and a table listing sample hours and credits system are included within the third section. (SW)
