Teacher Education: Renegotiating Roles for Mainstreaming.
Grosenick, Judith K., Ed.; Reynolds, Maynard C., Ed.
The focus of this volume is upon the changes that are needed in teacher education programs to address the process of mainstreaming handicapped children. The authors of the papers presented are associated with Deans' Grants Projects. The first section presents an overview of past and present special education services and advances a philosophy for the future of teacher education in general. In the second section, the papers examine strategies for change and their application to Deans' Grants Projects. The third section presents case studies of the evolution of three Deans' Grants Projects. The fourth section deals with specific project practices that may hold promise for the successful implementation of change in higher education. The fifth section examines several topics that intersect with the foci of all Deans' Grants Projects. Sections six and seven consist of one paper each. In the former, the author presents a commentary on the challenges facing education in general in today's society; in the latter, there is presented initially an historical analysis of different approaches to serving children with special needs and, then, a synthesis of the efforts, problems, and implications of the Deans' Grants Projects to date.
