Teaching Handicapped and Disadvantaged Students in Secondary Mainstream Vocational Classes. A Practical Guide.
Carter, Christopher W.
This overview is intended as a practical guide to assist vocational educators in dealing with the special problems that arise when disadvantaged and handicapped students pursue a career opportunity through vocational education classes on the secondary level. Concerns of the mainstream vocational teacher are discussed, and suggestions are provided for the development and implementation of the skills check for identification of handicapped and disadvantaged students. The next section summarizes and highlights the various disadvantaged and handicapped labels that educators come in contact with and makes these labels relevant to mainstream vocational instructors and paraprofessionals. Pros and cons of the curriculum modification quesion are then briefly pointed out. These resource persons are recommended as sources of aid and information: counselors, special educators, and student aides and peer tutors. Appendixes, which amount to over one-half of the guide, include definitions of disadvantages and handicapping conditions, examples of skills checks in the mathematics and reading areas, daily lesson plans for use with peer tutors or student aides, examples of study guides, and an annotated bibliography.
