Mainstreaming Special Educators: Interface between Regular and Special Education.
Candler, Ann; Sowell, Virginia
The paper focuses on the enhancement of the interface between regular educators and special educators with particular emphasis on effective mainstreaming of special education students. It is pointed out that for the interface to take place, positive interpersonal relationships, cooperative teaching conditions, and specific strategies and techniques for assisting the student in transition from special education to regular education are necessary. An agenda for conferences between regular and special class teachers is outlined; information regarding cooperative planning, shared classroom procedures, and innovative techniques is discussed; and the importance of student motivation is stressed.
