Project Learncycle. An Exemplary Educational Program.
Palisades Park Public Schools, NJ.
This Elementary Secondary Education Act Title III Project has been validated as successful, cost-effective, and exportable by the standards and guidelines of the U.S. Office of Education. The Title III Training-Resource Center has developed a systems approach to teacher training and student learning. This is a comprehensive and thorough package for intensive teacher retraining and improved basic curricula in special education. It is designed to meet a variety of needs through diagnostic prescriptive instructional systems grounded at every level in proven principles of learning theory. It includes diagnosis of teacher behavior, as well as student behavior (reading and mathematics and social skills). Thus, it zeroes in on both what skills teachers must acquire to improve learning in the classroom and what skills students need. It then makes proven prescriptions. Finally, it includes the actual provision of the treatment recommended, and in the implementation of the entire model, ways to assure that the treatment is followed and its salutary effects maintained are built in. The system includes two other components: (1) training of regular class teachers by trained special education teachers and (2) training of special students in needed survival skills. (Author/JM)
