Gillespie-Silver, Patricia; And Others
The trainer's manual for teaching aspects of the individualized educational plan (IEP) to teachers of special needs students is presented. An introductory section discusses the objectives of each of the five modules, provides a description of the IEP training materials, an overview of the training procedures, criteria and hints for trainers, a summary evaluation form, and suggestions for workshop planning and preparation. Topics of each of the modules are: (1) context and implications of the IEP, (2) in-school solutions during the prereferral period, (3) components of the IEP, (4) a team approach to IEPs, and (5) review and revision of the IEP. Each module contains an introductory section (in which objectives are outlined), pretraining activities, an overview of the training process, answers to the criterion test, and references. Approximately 85 transparencies are included to assist the trainer in teaching the modules. (PHR)
