Irvine, Freeman R., Jr.
A project was undertaken to plan and begin developing the objectives for a master's degree program to prepare individuals to fill a wide range of roles in providing special and vocational education to disabled students. The following accomplishments were made during the project: an eight-member planning task force was formed; resources available for use in the planning phases of the project were identified through various site visits, correspondence, and seminars and workshops; a project time line was formulated; broad goal statements were developed for various priority areas identified; and specific performance objectives were derived for courses in methods for teaching vocational skills to handicapped students, methods of teaching vocational subjects, and vocational guidance. (This project report includes course outlines for each of the three courses developed, a form to evaluate instructional materials for the academically disadvantaged, a guide outlining the specific needs of various subpopulations of special needs learners, and a discussion of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (PL 94-142) and section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973.)
