Strategies for Teaching Handicapped Students in Industrial Technology.
Morley, Raymond E.; And Others
This volume compiles methods known to be effective in helping industrial technology teachers work with mainstreamed handicapped students. It emphasizes an industrial technology/special education team approach, but also includes strategies that do not require this cooperation. The volume begins with a description of the special needs of several types of disabled learners, and goes on to discuss: the teacher's responsibilities in mainstreaming; guidelines for effective time management in the classroom; student placement alternatives for industrial education; assessment of students' readiness for industrial education; development of individualized education programs; management of the mainstream classroom environment; modification of the learning environment, materials, and teaching techniques; the use of microcomputers in computer-assisted instruction; peer tutoring; grading; and safety and accessibility. Examples of curriculum modules designed for special needs learners are provided on the topics of the automotive battery, production technology, and manufacturing. Samples of worksheets and timelines and references to relevant journal articles are also included, and numerous diagrams and illustrations are provided. (JDD)
