A Systematic Approach to Inservice Training for Teachers in Learning Disabilities.
Merrimack Education Center, Chelmsford, MA.
This document is focused on the various aspects of establishing a systematic approach to the inservice training mini-course in learning disabilities for classroom teachers. The training model is exemplary of a 4-hour, intensive training course designed and conducted by staff and consultants for the Merrimack Education Center. Its purpose is to serve as a resource, specifically for persons involved in establishing inservice training courses in local school districts and for school agencies, school districts, intermediate offices, and others responsible for inservice training. It spells out the objectives of the mini-course and cites an example of one instructional phase of the course outline as well as the evaluation design. One of the major objectives of this course is to demonstrate to teachers a systematic approach in building instructional programs beginning with the pre-assessment and instructional activities and continuing through the post-assessment. The task of designing a complete training course for learning disabilities is infinite; therefore, this systematic approach is meant to serve as a model for the building of training programs to meet locally specified objectives, which have been identified as pertinent to the instructional process. A selected bibliography of ERIC documents relating to learning disabilities is included. (Author/MBM)
