Feis, Polly; Werbel, Virginia
The Cooperative Vocational Program serves 300 mentally retarded, learning disabled, and behaviorally disordered adolescents in rural Nebraska in an attempt to increase employment for the students. The project is also designed to train secondary special education resource teachers in vocational preparation. Vocational services and activities include a series of 14 vocational curriculum modules containing vocational information, content, and learning activities based on entry level job competencies. The program also features an in-class employer program in which community employers describe their businesses, field trips are taken to community businesses, and there are activities in job exploration and training. Sample program tools, including referral forms, competency checklists, and job behaviors analysis forms are appended. Also appended are sample curriculum modules. (CL)
