The Institute for Change.
Landurand, Patricia M.; Pytowska, Eva
The "Institute for Change," a proposed modular training project to improve the quality of educational services to linguistic minorities in special education, was pilot tested with 12 college trainees. Nine modules were delivered in 60 hours of training, with individual training plans developed (samples are included). The project forms the basis of a 3 year effort to train college faculty in understanding bilingual/bicultural issues in special education. The 3 year institute involves modular training, a local school and college practicum, and an integrating seminar. (CL)
