Social Principles and Values in the Education of Handicapped Children.
Turnbull, H. Rutherford, III; And Others
This module (part of a series of 24 modules) is on the relevance of Public Law 94-142 to education, the history and intent of the law, and the law's specific provisions. The genesis of these materials is in the 10 "clusters of capabilities," outlined in the paper, "A Common Body of Practice for Teachers: The Challenge of Public Law 94-142 to Teacher Education." These clusters form the proposed core of professional knowledge needed by teachers in the future. The module is to be used by teacher educators to reexamine and enhance their current practice in preparing classroom teachers to work competently and comfortably with children who have a wide range of individual needs. The module includes objectives, scales for assessing the degree to which the identified knowledge and practices are prevalent in an existing teacher education program, and self-assessment test items. Topics discussed in this module include relevance of educational legislation, requirements of educational legislation, and free appropriate public education. A bibliography and four articles are included on expanding the rationale and knowledge base pertaining to Public Law 94-142. (JD)
