Workshop Training Kits. Volume I.
Ward, Ted; And Others
Presented in the first of a two volume series are four workshop training kits for development of teacher skills to be used with severely handicapped children and six workshop experience kits for training personnel to instruct inservice teachers. Directions are given for use of the kits, media, and a series of kits for evaluating, planning, or delivering information. The first section of each kit (for the leader) contains an overview of the activity, objectives, teacher prerequisites, time required, materials needed, step-by-step procedures, a discussion guide, and an evaluation form. The second part of each kit (for the trainee) contains materials for the activity, worksheets, a content evaluation form, a workshop evaluation form, and supplementary information on handicaps. Presented in the six kits are the following activities to be used with children with specific handicaps: a task analysis game for sequential teaching of trainable mentally retarded (TMR) and deaf blind (DB) children; an activity for specifying behaviors of multiply handicapped and TMR children; three demonstration reinforcement mystery games for teachers of DB or autistic children; and an activity involving charting behaviors of TMR, autistic, and DB children. Approximately 165 selected bibliographical references on behavior modification with low functioning children are listed as to source and price. The six kits for inservice teacher trainers provide the following activities: planning with teachers (through role playing), creating discussion tapes, practicing leadership skills, structuring scripts, evaluating workshop materials, and analyzing demonstrated behaviors of a workshop leader.
