Castleberry, Michael; Gazvoda, Marjorie
The report describes and evaluates George Washington University's Complementary Teacher Training Program during the 1971-74 period. It is explained that the demonstration program was designed to prepare undergraduate special education resource teachers to work directly with mainstreamed handicapped (including learning disabled and emotionally disturbed) elementary students and as consultants to school staff members. Cited are positive results of the training in such areas as self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, and professional information; and noted is the fact that most program graduates have secured employment as either complementary (22), special education (6), or elementary education (6) teachers. Extensive appendixes include information on the results of research evaluating the program, responses by teachers and principals to questionnaires about program and trainee effectiveness in their schools, a journal article describing the program, course outlines, and four bibliographies that list approximately 300 references.
