Mainstreaming at the Secondary Level: Seven Models that Work.
Riegel, R. Hunt, Ed.; Mathey, John P., Ed.
The document presents transcriptions from a symposium on mainstreaming at the secondary level. The following seven projects are briefly described: the Parallel Alternate Curriculum for Secondary Classrooms in Arizona (a compensatory program developed and conducted by regular educators with special educators' support); Operation Divert in Florida (an attempt to divert the student from the criminal justice system and to teach community living skills); Kansas' Project STILE--Strategies to Increase Learning Efficiency among learning disabled students (an effort to teach crucial learning skills to learning disabled students); the Model Resource Room Project in Michigan (a model designed to promote cooperative planning by regular and special educators); the Oklahoma Child Service Demonstration Center (an individualized diagnostic/prescriptive teaching intervention system based on a resource room model); the Child Service Demonstration Center for Secondary Students with Learning Disabilities in Pennsylvania (a collaborative venture between a university and the local education agency); and the Synergistic Education model in Texas (a program with a high intensity learning center, parent program, content mastery program, and essential skills program). A final paper notes 11 implications of the programs for teacher education, such as that teachers must be trained to seek further information and that teachers must have skills of organizing, problem solving, and planning.
