The Educable Mentally Handicapped Student in the Regular Classroom.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
The guide provides strategies for integrating educable mentally handicapped students into regular classrooms at most levels in the province of Alberta, Canada. Goals of an integrated program, such as development of a positive self-concept, are described. Three types of integration are noted, such as taking students who are placed in a regular class homeroom to a site for specialized instruction. Next described are the people involved in the integrated program, such as the special education teacher, regular classroom teacher, resource person, parents, and teacher aides. Thirteen suggestions are given for classroom management and work with the educable mentally handicapped student, including developing a warm and friendly relationship with the student and teaching the student to master fewer concepts rather than study many without mastery of any. A short reference list is provided. (MC)
