The Organization, Administration and Training of Teachers in an Intensive Workshop.
Gallien, John J.
Described is an ESEA Title I project carried out in Orange County, Virginia, a rural area. Project components included the training of 16 special education teachers during an 8-week summer program and a 6-week summer instructional program for 194 educationally disadvantaged students in grades 1-8. Student classes served as practical sites for project teachers, who were regular classroom teachers who evidenced potential to become teachers of handicapped children. Outlined are preliminary project planning, the instructional component for teachers, a sample of the type of demonstrations and suggestions given teachers concerning use of equipment and instructional materials (use of tape recorder in building vocabulary), and the instructional program for students, which was planned around a core of field trips. Since 12 of the teachers continued as special education teachers the following school year, the project was considered successful in that it helped provide special educational services in the school system by meeting the manpower need.
