Evaluation Handicapped Component. Implementation of the Teacher and His Staff.
This document contains reports of three projects in the handicapped component of the Grand Forks, North Dakota, Teacher and His Staff program supported by ESEA Title III. The first project reported is "A Pilot Study Using a Teacher Aide Employing Operant Procedures to Assist a Speech Clinician in a Public School Setting." Included is description of the development of new methods and materials (e.g., an innovative reinforcement device which dispenses the tokens, which are trading stamps) for use by the teacher aide in working with nine children with severe articulation disorders. The second report, an "Evaluation of Teacher-Aide Directed Taped Instruction in the Educable Mentally Retarded Classroom," describes an attempt to determine whether seven educable retarded junior high school students could learn and retain information through directed audio tapes. It describes the use of a teacher aide to transcribe textbook information onto tapes, to direct instruction using the tapes, and to administer and record results of pre- and posttests used to determine the technique's effectiveness. The third paper reports "The Development of a Physical Education Program for Mentally Educable Students in Winship Elementary School." General organization and content of the program are described. Each report contains description of project results, evaluation (all were considered generally successful), and recommendations for further study or modification. (JS)
