In Tune with P.L. 94-142: A Guide for Training Teachers Responsible for Music Education of Handicapped Learners.
Thompson, Keith P., Ed.; And Others
The report documents the 1978 National Committee, Arts for the Handicapped/Music Educators National Conference Special Project to produce a series of syllabi for training music educators to work with handicapped students. Section I addresses questions asked by project participants regarding two issues: What are the implications of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, for music education for handicapped learners? and How can educators most effectively be trained (or retrained) to insure that handicapped learners will receive appropriate music experiences within their educational programs? Section II contains the syllabi for nine training programs ranging from a 2 hour workshop for the typical after school inservice meeting to a 2 week course offering three graduate level credits. Topics addressed in the training programs include the following: adapted musical experiences and simulated individualized education program (IEP) processes; involvement in musical activities which contribute to visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile learning; state and federal legislation that has implications for the music education of handicapped learners; and music education strategies for the mainstreamed classroom. A list of resources for workshop leaders is provided. A third section offers examples of some of the training materials that were developed within the scope of the project including descriptions of various simulation activities, a sample instrument for assessing musical achievement, model IEPs, and instruments for workshop evaluation. A final section identifies some of the incidental outcomes which were direct and indirect results of the project. (SB)
