Programmatic Research to Develop and Disseminate Improved Instructional Technology for Handicapped Children. Project MORE Quarterly Progress Report, September 1 to December 1, 1972.
Schiefelbusch, Richard L.; Lent, James R.
During the past reporting period the curriculum development staff of Project MORE (Mediated Operational Research for Education) has made substantial progress in attaining its program objectives. Design and development phases have proceeded on schedule. Four programs are currently in the field-testing stage, and four others are under development. The program dissemination editor has established procedures for obtaining and holding copyrights. Also, following the advice of a marketing consultant, arrangements have been made to list the Hair Rolling Program. In addition, plans have been made to write a book detailing the principles and procedures of the new technology required for the design, development, and dissemination of educational products by Project MORE. Furthermore, progress has been made in the McLean-Raymore Speech Articulation program. The program design and packaging, however, were not made efficient enough for large-scale application. Other aspects of program development will be temporarily delayed in deference to preparing the generlaization component for marketing. Moreover, the research staff together with the media group are proposing to develop a new program thrust using television. Finally, another project component is being proposed to teach pre-arithmetic skill to retarded children. (Author/WCM)
