A Program to Assist Educational Personnel to Teach Students of Wide Variability in Regular Classrooms. Director's Annual Progress Report.
Arneklev, Bruce L.
This report describes results of the second year of a three-year extension of an Office of Education-funded program to prepare teachers and teacher aides to work with exceptional children in the regular classrooms. Emphasis was placed on three major areas: the training of teachers and aides, community involvement and institutional change, and the development of materials. Continued evaluation of progress of handicapped and more typical children at the laboratory school training setting indicated that their achievement and self-concept levels have been maintained or enhanced. Evaluation of trainee progress indicated that attitudes were improved and tendency to individualize increased, but that the use of attitudes and skills attained was largely contingent on the involvement and support of principals and superintendents where they were to be employed. Evaluation of impact on the community and institutions was couched in terms of activities that occurred partially because of project promotion. The progress report included 23 appendixes which contain details of program materials. (Related documents ED 043 598, ED 054 069.) (Author/MJM)
