Developing In-Service Brochures Designed to Prepare the Vocational Educator Academically and Attitudinally to Work with Disadvantaged Students. Final Report.
Iwler, Irvin H.; And Others
A project developed an inservice brochure and a summary booklet that defined the conditions that affect academically disadvantaged vocational students in an effort to increase vocational educators' awareness of what it is like to be an academically disadvantaged student. The publications also identify how these students learn and illustrate the techniques and strategies needed to teach special students. Consultants from the Pennsylvania Bureau of Vocational Education also identified the modifications in curriculum, facilities, and teaching strategies needed to help disadvantaged students succeed in the classroom. This information was also included in the brochure. Appendix A, "Academically Disadvantaged Students; A Vocational Teacher's Guide," defines the academically disadvantaged students, offers information on identifying them, suggests instructional techniques to help these students succeed, and describes appropriate learning materials. Appendix B, a booklet of 20 pages, is titled "The Student with Special Needs; a Guide for Vocational Educators," and tells how to identify students with specific handicaps, suggests teaching strategies, and lists additional resources.
