Effects of Varying the Special Educator's Role within an Algebra Class on Math Attitude and Achievement.
Rosman, Nancy J. Spiegel
This study compared the effects of two different special educator roles within high school algebra classes containing special needs students. The special educator served as either in-room assistant or as co-teacher. The study was conducted for one chapter of algebra study over a 3-week period. No significant differences between groups were found prior to the treatment. Following the two treatments, students in the co-teaching condition scored significantly higher in achievement than did students in the in-room assistance group or the control group. Females in the co-teaching condition achieved significantly higher scores than did females in the control group. Females receiving in-room assistance also scored significantly higher than control group females. No significant findings in achievement were found for males or for students receiving special education services. Appended are forms used in the program and a brief description of the collaboration model. (Contains 61 references and 15 tables.) (DB)
