Smith, M. Sherry; And Others
The first of six volumes about Project CHANGE (Concepts of Handicaps and Attitudes Need Guidance and Education), a curriculum designed to improve elementary aged children's attitudes toward the disabled, presents information on installation and management of the inservice teacher training component, audiovisual materials for the teacher training program, and the content of the teacher training program. Part I provides role descriptions of project personnel (such as curriculum advisors, administrators, and special education teachers); a step by step procedure for scheduling, testing, and developing the parent volunteer primary testing team; and a step by step procedure for installing the teacher training program. Part II contains a section on utilization of overheads with many instructional pages appropriate for projection, and a section on utilization of audiovisual materials which is a compilation of materials listed by handicap with information on suppliers. The final part contains course materials (including lecture scripts, fact sheets, and handouts) for eight inservice training sessions focusing on the following topics: blindness, physical handicap, diabetes, mental retardation, learning disability, speech impairment, deafness, epilepsy, behavior disorders, rehabilitation and health careers, and methods of presenting the project curriculum to primary, intermediate, and junior high aged students.
