Davis, Pamela S.
The practicum report describes a program designed to enhance the prevocational education program offered emotionally handicapped sixth and seventh graders in a self-contained classroom setting. Major project goals included incorporating the prevocational educational skills into the daily curriculum and promoting a team approach. The program involved inservice training, orientation sessions, student assessment, and program development and implementation. Program results included student participation in jobs inside and outside of the classroom, visits by resource persons to the class, a field trip to an employment agency, student vocational assessment, and increased student awareness due to daily emphasis on occupational information and everyday living skills.
