Curricula Improvement Center, Punta Gorda, FL.
Intended to reduce the occurrence of inattending behaviors in 400 educable mentally handicapped students and to increase and maintain attending behaviors, project EDUCATE is described as an inservice program to teach behavior modification techniques to 16 special education teachers. EDUCOURSE I is said to have resulted from a review of research, an analysis of videotaped classroom sessions, and an assessment of learning problems and teaching skills by exceptional child educators. The inservice course is described as consisting of a teacher handbook presenting the theoretical basis of the course and containing lesson plan aids for microteach lessons and four videotaped model lessons. Analysis of pre- and post-course videotapes of typical 15 minute classroom learning activities revealed significant achievement of the project objective by the teachers in the program. See EC 051 388 for the teacher handbook. (DB)
