The Special Education Resource Room and Teacher Training Program.
Temple Univ., Philadelphia, PA. Coll. of Education.
The Philadelphia School District, in conjunction with Temple University, initiated the Resource Room-Teacher Training Cooperative Program in September 1970 to offer school-aged children with educational handicaps the security of normalization, special instructional environments, and optional field-based teacher education resources and settings. Elementary schools provided learning centers (resource rooms) and a teacher-training room, in rooms previously designed as self-contained special education units. Temple prepared special education personnel in these innovative resource rooms, while the children become eligible for pinpointed educational intervention in regular classes. Evaluation of the resource room program indicated increased student achievement in reading and arithmetic. The students expressed favorable attitudes towards the program in interviews. The primary means of evaluating the teacher training program involved obtaining the judgments and reactions of students concerning their experiences and activities. (Author/JA)
