Arneklev, Bruce L.; Pugmire, Dorothy Jean
The five goals of the 3-year Education Profession Development Act (EPDA) Project covered in this report are: a) to retrain experienced teachers and train auxiliary educational aides to assist handicapped children and educationally impoverished children to reach a higher level of learning potential in the regular classroom; b) to use the team approach as a positive force for the development of skills and understanding of human relationships requisite to effective participation in a team enterprise, with division of labor and limits of autonomy identified for each participating member; c) to effect change in the teacher education program by providing multiple opportunities for early entry, as well as conventional entry, into programs for growth in knowledge, awareness, and sensitivity to the handicapping conditions to learning; d) to involve agencies from the community in the educative process for the enhancement of learning for all children and for facilitation of constructive interaction between schools and communities; and e) to develop and test for dissemination techniques and materials that have been found useful in dealing with children with wide ranges of ability in the regular classroom. The document describes the operation of the program and includes two extensive appendixes ("Self-Concept Assessment Among Children" and "Performance Objectives and Related Data." (JA)
