Integrating Skills, Knowledge and Attitudes for Teaching the Handicapped into Regular Teacher Education. Volume I. Deans' Grant Project: First Year Report.
Clark, Elmer J.; And Others
The Deans' Grant Project at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale was planned to prepare regular classroom teachers to work in the mainstreamed environment. Materials and strategies for introducing knowledge and skills into the core sequence of teacher education courses were developed. This volume contains materials and information for two of the basic courses, (1) Human Growth, Development, and Learning, and (2) Basic Techniques and Procedures in Education. In the first section, a discussion is presented, in question and answer format, of the characteristics of handicapped students. Descriptions are provided of handicapping conditions and the problems they present in the classroom. Conditions covered are hearing and visual problems, sensory-motor problems, perception problems, language and math problems, and general classroom behavior problems. In the second section, the role of the regular classroom teacher in the education of the handicapped is discussed. Two case histories are related, and the Individualized Education Program (IEP) developed for each student is outlined. Each IEP was developed by the principal, the director of special education, the math and reading resource teachers, the consulting teacher, the parents, and the student. Selected annotated bibliographies on mainstreaming are included in the appendices. (JD)
