The packet of materials includes complete instructions for conducting four teacher training workshops designed to familiarize regular and special class teachers with individualized instructional techniques. The workshops are consecutive in that Workshop 1 involves the participants in an exploratory activity to determine feelings and perceptions regarding exclusion from a group, while Workshops 2 and 3 focus on informal diagnosis and prescriptive techniques for more individualized classroom programs. Workshop 4 provides teachers with the opportunity to construct a learning device that can be used with children of varying levels of ability. Each workshop is designed for 30-40 participants and instructions include objectives, prerequisites, time and materials needed, physical arrangement, and specific procedures. Also included are a list of essential workshop leader attitudes and a copy of the book "Instructional Alternatives for Exceptional Children" by E. Deno (ED 074 678). (LS)
