Enhancement of Pedagogical Abilities of Vocational Teachers to Serve Handicapped Students in Regular CBVE Programs--Year 2. Final Report. Teacher Education Research Series Vol. 27, No. 1.
Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park. Dept. of Agricultural and Extension Education.
A project provided vocational teachers with inservice field-based clinical experience with handicapped students to develop pedagogical competencies. It also implemented a delivery system for providing assistance to vocational teachers who have handicapped learners mainstreamed into their classrooms. After the types of handicapped students were identified, a delivery system to aid in the development of pedagogical abilities of vocational teachers was implemented. Vocational teachers received both formal instruction and individualized instruction in a clinical atmosphere to develop the necessary competencies to serve the needs of handicapped students. Over 15 teachers of vocational technical education from six area vocational schools in the Pennsylvania State University's service delivery area received instruction in how to work with handicapped students mainstreamed into their classrooms. This instruction included teaching strategies, instructional approaches, technical information on the different handicapping conditions, and alternative evaluation techniques. (Following the seven-page narrative are 92 pages of appendixes containing sample materials used in the inservice and materials distributed to teachers--teaching techniques and strategies for students with various disabilities, vocational modifications, alternative testing methods, and a handicap check list.)
