Quinones, Wm. A.; And Others
This curriculum guide provides information on how a Texas high school for adolescents and adults (ages 15-21) with severe disabilities was able to coordinate the Life Centered Career Education (LCCE) curriculum with Dallas Public Schools district curricula and other best practices. Part 1 discusses why the LCCE curriculum has been adopted and the competency units of the curriculum: daily living skills, personal social skills, and occupational guidance and preparation. The competencies and subcompetencies contained in the LCCE curriculum are listed. Part 2 describes academic excellence indicators and teacher effective indices that can be used for special populations for identifying progress and success in educational performance. Part 3 provides matrices of LCCE and Dallas Public Schools initiatives; LCCE, district curricula, and current best practices; and LCCE and local campus assessment instruments. Part 4 includes blank forms for measuring student progress on individual education plan goals and objectives, lesson plans, and profile and data sheets. Appendices include competencies for the developmental center, work activity center, transition adjustment, total communication, deaf education, and adapted physical education. A campus improvement plan and a list of the national education goals are included. (Contains 27 references.) (CR)
