Educating Students in Least Restrictive Environments: Instructional Preparation for Teachers. Series III: Instructional Management for Exceptional Children in Regular Classes.
Swartz, M. Evelyn, Ed.
Intended for preservice regular education teachers, the modules in Series III address the knowledge and skills considered essential for working directly with exceptional children. It is explained in a series overview that many of the enabling activities require contact with children in the classroom and therefore the moduels should be used in methods classes and/or student teaching. Module 1 helps preservice teachers develop skills in verbal communication by giving clear directions to learners; by using set induction, cueing, and closure; and by reinforcing appropriate classroom behaviors differentially. Module 2 addresses a systematic procedure, interaction analysis, for describing and classifying verbal and nonverbal communication between teacher and learner. A third module focuses on all facets of questioning techniques. Module 4 helps preservice teachers integrate and apply their professional skills and knowledge to the planning and delivery of instruction that ensures frequent success for learners. A fifth module explains a variety of motivational techniques, while a sixth describes techniques for classroom behavior management. Module 7 focuses on formative evaluation, and Module 8 gives information on maintaining precise and accurate records of students' daily progress. The final two modules present procedures for reporting student progress to parents and to ancillary personnel. A prospectus, student objectives, and enabling activities are outlined for each module. Sample forms and handouts are included. (SBH)
