Strategies and Techniques for Mainstreaming. Revised.
Scheetz, Janet A.; Hudak, Barbara J.
The handbook is intended for the special education teacher and covers all aspects of mainstreaming according to the Monroe model, developed in Monroe County, Michigan. The model focuses on the special education teacher/consultant, who provides direct diagnostic and instructional services to special students, and indirect services to building staff, students, and parents. The handbook follows the Monroe model by describing both direct and indirect services; and presents material according to academic, behavioral, and vocational areas (except where vocational information is part of the total process); and by elementary and secondary areas. An introduction outlines the history and impact of legislation, and highlights functions of 10 school district departments such as transportation. Described thereafter, with accompanying sample formats, contracts, and worksheets, are the following topics (sample subtopics are in parentheses): the Monroe model and six other models such as the crisis resource program; roles of personnel, and techniques the special teacher may use when working with the personnel; structuring the classroom (designing, scheduling); referral and diagnosis (the multidisciplinary team's role, diagnostic tests); the individual education plan; techniques for modifying the curriculum; behavioral strategies (rewards, contracts); consultation (interview, consulting formats); prevocational and vocational education; parents (overprotective, stressed); inservice and staff development; and program evaluation (includes questionnaires). Approximatey 125 references are provided. (MC)
