Syroid, Walter, Ed.
Presented are the agenda and description of a 5-day institute for special education teachers held by the Detroit Public Schools in August 1973. Noted are institute purposes including the exploration of diagnostic tools, the development of teacher-made diagnostic instruments, and instruction in construction techniques and use of teaching aids. The description, in the form of a diary by a hypothetical institute participant, includes reactions to presentations (such as use of psychological evaluations by a psychologist), reports of small group activities (such as construction of masters for professionally appearing duplicated worksheets), and lists of materials used. Also listed are instructional aids displayed on 16 tables each focusing on a particular skill such as motor skill or tactile discrimination. Sample class activities and materials shared by institute participants are summarized. The institute description ends with highly positive evaluations in both prose and poetry. (DB)
