Utah State Board of Education, Salt Lake City.
This document contains seven reports on the first phase of EPDA programs in Utah which were intended to train people from the community to make a substantial contribution to the classroom. Carbon County School District provided a program for 19 teacher aides which included college courses and assignment to experienced classroom teachers. The Granite School District project was designed to obtain teachers and paraprofessional staff for special education programs. Each participant was able to work in an actual classroom situation, and workshops were conducted by university and district administrative staff, teachers, and consultants. The Millard County School District program had 33 participants who were trained as clerical, service, and classroom aides. The Ogden School District program to select and train teaching personnel was designed for two phases, one to develop a new training program and new materials and the second to recruit, select, and train 30 people using this program. The report deals only with the first phase involving the development of self-instructional units called WILKITS (Weber Individualized Learning Kits). The Provo School District program involved the design of a curriculum for teachers and paraprofessionals. Tooele School District provided a workshop for instructional and clerical aides. Wasatch County organized an eight-district cooperative program. Material used in several of the programs is also included in the document.) (MBM)
