Preparing Classroom Teachers to Work with Mainstreamed Handicapped Children: A University's Approach to Integration of Curriculum at the Undergraduate Level.
Aksamit, Donna L.; And Others
The development of the Mainstream Curriculum Integration Model at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, designed to prepare regular educators to deal with handicapped children, is chronicled. Faculty is explained to have identified 10 content areas (including awareness and attitudes, litigation and legislation, and classroom and student behavior management) and to have delineated specific objectives within the clusters. Examples of ways in which the curriculum has been integrated into specific courses (such as Fundamentals of Development for Education) as well as the program for students in elementary education (including exposure to a mainstreamed setting in student teaching) and educational administration. Procedures for continuing the approach after termination of project funding are noted, as are efforts to monitor the program's effectiveness. (CL)
