Research design and methodology are discussed in relation to curriculum research past and present, a five-category research framework, and design of a curricular research methodology. Other papers concern the special education resource room, a model preschool for handicapped children and the behavior modification model, competency based education, the usefulness of instructional materials, inservice teacher education to improve services to mildly handicapped children in the regular classroom, the effects of isolated study on academic performance, and an exhibition of art by the handicapped.
