Mainstreaming and Learning Disabilities: [A Series].
David, Karin, Ed.
Six booklets are designed to assist special educators, principals, teachers and parents to find information on how learning disabled and other handicapped children can be placed and taught in the least restrictive environment. Volume I is a catalog of books, articles, references, programs, and projects on mainstreaming and learning disabilities. Section I lists authors dealing with specific aspects of mainstreaming, while Section II contains full references arranged alphabetically by author (or title if no author appears). Volume II, by W. Cruickshank, is titled "Mainsteaming--Education for All Children." The author outlines guidelines for changing placement from the most to the least restrictive and lists characteristics of a mainstreaming program. Volume III is the French version of Volume II by Cruickshank. In the fourth volume of the series, "Mainstreaming in Quebec--Teacher Competencies in an Integrated Classroom," D. Sokolyk presents the viewpoint of the university teacher trainer and addresses the question of teacher competencies with a review of the literature and a report on a survey of Quebec educators. Volume V contains three articles--"Pour Une Reformulation de la Problematique de L'Integration" by A. Gelinas; "Ou en Est-on Avec L'Integration au Quebec?" by M. Lavallee; and "Les Facteurs de Perception de Soi et de Perception par Autrui dans le Processus D'Integration Scolaire" by H. Caglar. A final volume, "Mainstreaming in Action--A Model" by A. Wener and R. O'Shaugnessy, describes one school board's experience in implementing a mainstreaming program in Montreal. (SB)
