Resources for Effective Teaching.
Walline, Jane K.
A special studies institute on resources for effective teaching was designed to train newly appointed or potential Curriculum Resource Consultants (CRC) who work in conjunction with special education instructional materials centers in Michigan. Objectives of the workshop sequences included the development of teacher-training competencies in the CRC's and the provision of actual kits of training materials. The role of the CRC was defined as providing services to special education staff in the areas of inservice materials and curriculum, material selection, and directed consultation. Eight basic inservice kits (some containing tape cassettes) three supplementary kits, and one participant developed kit were used during the workshop to prepare participants to utilize the kits in their districts. Topics of the kits include the design of an instructional game criterion measures, feedback, building a perceptual-motor experience, and evaluation. Key concepts of the institute were communication, dissemination, and adoption; and CRS's were encouraged to employ all three concepts for effective work with teachers. In evaluation, all participants indicated they would be comfortable in offering inservice training in their own districts. (DB)
