Motivation and Education of Disadvantaged Pupils. Report of the Institute for Teachers of Students with Special Needs.
North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State Univ., Greensboro.; North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
This report of the Institute for Teachers of Students with Special Needs, held July 20-31, 1970, represents major presentations and content of the Institute. Several sessions were devoted to group discussions, panels, demonstrations, field trips, and small group activities. The major objectives of the institute were: (1) to provide a setting for identification and discussion of problems and issues that are inherent in developing programs and teaching disadvantaged students; (2) to develop an understanding of and empathy and appreciation for disadvantaged pupils; (3) to determine changes in programs for disadvantaged students in North Carolina communities that should be made in light of changing technology, teaching methods, and community patterns; (4) to generate a meaningful dialogue between teachers of disadvantaged pupils and other leaders in occupational and general education on current issues and problems affecting programs for disadvantaged pupils, with implications for effective program development in North Carolina communities; and, (5) to determine how resources within and external to the local community can be utilized most effectively in teaching disadvantaged pupils, and to encourage the development of an association of local communities toward this end.
