Regular Education Inservice Training and Resource Manual (Mainstreaming).
Education Service Center Region 19, El Paso, TX.
The manual, in looseleaf format, is intended for training regular education teachers involved in mainstreaming handicapped students. The manual is organized into seven units of instruction: the law (P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act); handicapping conditions; assessment; individualized education programs; instructional resources; daily activities; and the evaluation process. Each unit is organized in a format which includes educational objective, utilization of content, and instructional information. Units are self contained and can be utilized independently. An introductory section discusses the inservice program design used in Texas to retrain 150 classroom teachers and other personnel such as administrators and paraprofessionals over a 3 year period. Six program objectives are listed and correlated with specific workshops. Among topics considered in the manual are the following: the child centered educational process, interpretation of P.L. 94-142, each of the specific handicaps, preparing nonhandicapped students for a handicapped classmate, norm referenced vs. criterion referenced assessment measured measures, informal assessment, Texas policy and procedures, aids in writing behavioral stated goals and objectives, resources on handicapping conditions for general education, learning centers and independent study, basic skills daily activities at the secondary level, classroom observation module, and continuous progress grading.
