Wallace, Steve; And Others
This document defines the role and responsibilities of Missouri's vocational preparation teachers as they work with disadvantaged and handicapped students in vocational education programs and offers advice on how they can fulfill their role and responsibilities. Following the introduction is the questionnaire used in a survey of vocational preparation teachers conducted in October 1987 through which five areas of responsibility were identified. The next section lists legislation and legislative guidelines (such as the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, and the Vocational Rehabilitation Act) that affects the responsibilities of vocational preparation teachers. The next five sections suggest what vocational preparation teachers can do to help students develop job and life skills, to help students obtain career information, access and evaluate students, plan programs and develop instruction, and participate successfully in meetings and cultivate contacts valuable to their programs. Each section includes an overview, content in question-and-answer format, and a resource list. The document concludes with a glossary and a 33-item bibliography. (CML)
