In the process of preparing the material, the two-day course was presented by the authors to four different classes. The recommendations, exercises, and workstation demonstrations proVided in the Teacher’s Guide are based on the experience from these trial classes. The exercises contained herein were all developed by Dennis Livingston.
The course material is presented in three formats:
- Class presentation – a classroom lecture format.
- Exercises – an interactive format.
- Workstations – a demonstration format.
The guide explains the formats necessary to teach each chapter of the Training Manual. It also provides the approximate time necessary for each component of the chapter. The times are keyed to a Master Schedule that follows this Overview.
The subject of each class presentation is keyed by page number to the Training Manual. For the most part, subject matter from the Training Manual is not repeated in the Teacher’s Guide. However, particularly important information is repeated, and noted in the Teacher’s Manual by the terms Key Issue, Key Point, or Critical Principle. These terms serve to emphasize the most essential concepts of lead-safe rehabilitation.
Some of the exercises developed for the course requires handouts. Master handouts are located in the Appendices, and can be copied for any size class. Portions of the handouts can be copied on overhead transparencies to assist the instructor in leading an interactive discussion of the exercise.
