Training Special and Regular Educators in the Observation, Identification and Management of Children (K-3) with Learning Handicaps. Final Report, 1971-1974.
Hession, Lucy Anne
Reported are details of a project to develop and implement a 16-lesson television course to train teachers at the early childhood and primary grade levels in the identification and remediation of learning handicaps. Instructional television is said to have been selected because of its suitability in serving educators all over Maryland and its compatibility with the continuum concept of Maryland special education. It is reported that the project, which gives teachers 3 hours of either inservice or academic credit, was piloted in the spring of 1973 in 11 local education agencies with a total of 180 teachers, followed by statewide implementation in 1973-74, and subsequent use in 13 other states. Summarized for each of the 3 years are major project accomplishments and spinoff developments. The major portion of the document consists of appendixes such as a teacher interview checksheet, a listing of project consultants, specific lesson objectives, the pre-post instrument used for pilot telecast, factsheet on the project, results of informal teacher critiques, and a budget breakdown of the project.
