Career Education Curriculum Guide for Mild, Moderate, Severe and Profoundly Handicapped Students, 1981-1987.
Blaylock, Dave; And Others
This program, developed at the Ogden-Weber Education Center (Ogden, Utah) provides a curriculum for all levels of mental handicap, in which exit objectives of one phase meet entrance objectives for the next phase, and all objectives meet the requirements of the setting in which mentally handicapped students will live after completion of public school education. The program also aims to provide an easy method of writing individual education plan goals and objectives. It does not intend to replace special education classroom curricula, but to coordinate outcome-based curricula that are being used. The curriculum guide is divided into curriculum modules, based on student age (5-22 years) and level of mental handicap. Each module is divided into 17 subject areas (such as time, money, measurement, expressive language and socialization). For each combination of age, level of handicap, and subject area, a classroom goal detailing sheet is developed. These sheets contain an annual goal, several short-term instructional objectives, performance criteria, and a list of references. The curriculum is computer-based (Apple II) to provide flexibility for dealing with individualized needs and to save administrative time. (JDD)
