Instruction in Vocational Special Needs: A Resource for Teacher Educators.
Parrish, Linda H., Ed.; Kok, Marilyn R., Ed.
This publication reviews teacher education programs in vocational special needs courses from 22 universities and reproduces a syllabus from each course and selected teaching materials. The publication includes (1) what courses are offered; (2) who teaches them; and (3) what makes them distinctive. Course offerings include introductory courses, as well as courses on assessment, guidance, counseling, methods, curriculum, communication, and other related topics. Most courses are graduate-level inservice courses, drawing enrollment from vocational teachers, secondary special education teachers, rehabilitation counselors, work-study coordinators, and administrative personnel. Course activities and assignments vary according to objectives. Multi-media presentations also are included in some of the courses. The course syllabuses include objectives, outlines, assignments, bibliographies, and, in a few cases, tests. (KC)
