Training Library Media Specialists to Serve the Handicapped Student. Final Report.
Included in this final report by the South Dakota Division of Elementary and Secondary Education are agendas for the conferences and workshops held to provide the elementary school library media specialist with the additional skills necessary for direct service to the exceptional student in a library learning center environment. The script of "Kangaroo Kapers," an inservice awareness/training film developed for reinforcement of the Kangaroo Kapers resource guide, appears in the report. The final evaluation explores the degree of success in achieving these objectives: (1) to provide media specialists with skills necessary to serve the handicapped learner, (2) to provide teacher support skills and resources to library media specialists, and (3) to develop and disseminate a guide for further support of school media specialists. Evaluation data were collected through telephone interviews, questionnaires, and knowledge tests sent to program participants and to a control group; comments about workshops were also collected from participants. Appendices include lists of participating elementary schools and librarians and control schools, a schedule for the Bucket Brigade tutorial program for K-3 students with learning problems, a summary of a unit taught to 13 special education students, and the project coordinator's and director's logs.
