Project STRETCH: Strategies for Training Regular Educators to Teach Children with Handicaps. Final Report, FY 1977-78.
Weiner, Lawrence R.; And Others
The final report discusses achievements of Project STRETCH (Strategies for Training Regular Educators to Teach Children with Handicaps), designed to develop 20 one-half hour videotape cassettes and manuals on the needs of mild to moderately handicapped students and methods of maintaining them in the regular classroom. Topics for the videotapes were identified by representative public school teacher groups and university personnel as essential in meeting the teaching responsibility of providing good instruction for all students, with emphasis on handicapped students only where the handicapping condition necessitated an instructional difference for maximum potential development. Topics included were mainstreaming, grouping, learning styles, simulation, assessment, learning centers, peer tutoring, behavior modification, and parent counseling. National and statewide dissemination activities are described. The bulk of the document is composed of six appendixes, including course evaluations, project correspondence, and descriptions of STRETCH workshops. (CL)
