Creating an Accepting Environment for the Handicapped Child in the Regular Classroom. Initiating Change Through Inservice Education: A Topical Instructional Modules Series.
The facilitator's guide to a three session inservice training module on creating an accepting classroom environment for regular classroom teachers details the 21 steps of the first two sessions, provides the texts of three lecturettes, and includes appropriate handouts, worksheets, and transparencies. For the first two sessions each step is presented in terms of purpose, materials needed, time limit, and procedure. Session III is intended to be a problem solving and strategy developing session for which existing methodologies are recommended. The lecturettes are on the shaping of attitudes toward handicapped individuals, on potential styles that are harmful or helpful in advocating positive change, and on a conceptual model for behavioral change.
