LCCE Insider, v1 n1-3 May 1997-Mar 1998
This document brings together the first three issues of a newsletter designed for users of the Council for Exceptional Children's Life Centered Career Education (LCCE) curriculum. The newsletter's goal is to inform practitioners of curriculum implementation ideas and transition issues, and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas. Featured articles discuss: a curriculum guide for teachers of students with moderate mental disabilities, an updated edition of the basic LCCE text, special training opportunities for using the LCCE Complete Curriculum, lowering dropout rates by using the LCCE curriculum, becoming a trainer for the LCCE Curriculum, using cooperative learning strategies along with the LCCE curriculum to prepare students for the dynamics of the workplace, using video clips as an alternative to role playing, the student-led individualized education program and self-determination, and a pilot LCCE program in a Missouri school district. Three lesson plans are included, on planning balanced meals, using the Internet for job information, and greeting people in the community appropriately. Each issue lists resources for further information. (CR/LC)
