Mainstreaming: The Glenbrook Model.
Franson, Joseph Paul
The author describes an approach to mainstreaming handicapped middle school students in which students were placed in a regular remedial class with a regular education teacher, a special education teacher, and an aide. The model evolved originally because of staffing problems, but achievement in both self confidence and academics resulted in its continuation. It is explained that an earlier decision to have special education courses parallel regular education whenever possible helped to ease the student's transition. The range of special-regular education options and their interrelatonships is depicted in a chart. (CL)
