The Development and Implementation of a Plan for Mainstreaming Retarded Educable Students Into Regular Classrooms in the Comprehensive High School: Phase II.
Scott, Walter H.
The paper reports on the organization and implementation of a plan that assisted 75 mainstreamed educable mentally retarded students meet high school requirements. The report indicates that by the end of the second year 50% of all the mainstreamed students received a passing grade in all high school subjects with the exception of physical education. Attitudes of teachers are described as changing positively and parental involvement is shown to have increased significantly. It was established that the students showed significant gains in academic achievement and relationships, and greater participation in extracurricular activities. Among appendixes are sections on helping students develop desirable classroom behavior, various forms (such as a resource room behavior checklist and a due process notice), and a staff development questionnaire.
