Training Complex Model for Appraising and Programming. Summary Report.
Sanders, Jean E.
This model program was designed to improve inservice education for local school districts involved in the delivery of special education services to students in public schools, grades kindergarten through twelve. Six regional training centers were established in Massachusetts following a needs assessment survey of teachers to identify competencies needed by regular classroom teachers for effectively teaching mildly handicapped students. Four objectives for these training centers are stated: (1) to assist the six regional training centers with the systematic identification of teacher perceived needs; (2) to conduct three training institutes during the school year for trainers of teachers and training center staff; (3) to maintain a resource linkage system and a training resource bank and create a state access system; and (4) to review the effectiveness of the training centers through demonstrated expertise in offering inservice instruction and information services. Included in this document are the original proposal and outline for the model, and a summary report issued eight months later. (JD)
