Vidaurri, Otilia V.
Described is a teacher development center, an inservice program designed to develop competencies for individualizing instruction in 73 regular and special educators attending 2-week training sessions. It is explained that training focused on 12 content modules (including teacher communication and guidance, classroom management, and organization of learning centers) presented in five learning centers using different modalities (including audiovisual centers and game presentations). Pre and post criterion referenced tests are said to indicate that although only nine Ss achieved mastery, which had been established at 75%, the majority of Ss demonstrated improvement in individualizing instruction. Among 13 appendixes are a copy of the diagnostic instrument used as a pre and post test, sample evaluation comments from participants, and a followup questionnaire for principals. (CL)
