The TRIIC--Tri-I (Innovative, Integrative, Individualized) Curriculum for Mainstreaming.
Jamieson, Bonnie; And Others
The Tri-I (Innovative, Integrative, Individualized Curriculum)--TRIIC--contains a systematic method to train preschool teachers in using the curriculum for behaviorally handicapped and/or nonhandicapped children. The curriculum is designed to aid teachers in: developing individualized goals for handicapped and nonhandicapped children (assessment/curricular linkage); selecting group lessons to accommodate the individual goals of all children; managing the behaviors of children in the group; and collecting child data to document progress. The assessment curricular linkage component of the model involves frequent child assessment geared to developing individualized student goals. Group lessons are selected to correspond with individual objectives in three skill areas (language, gross motor, and cognitive). Group management techniques include effective group arrangement, delivery of clear directions, and conducting lessons while promoting interaction and maintaining the attention of children of different functioning levels. To maintain up-to-date individualized program plans, data are collected daily on the objectives of all handicapped children. Sample record sheets, and a sample lesson are included. (SW)
