A Listing of Alternative Training Outcomes for Instructional Personnel Engaged in the Education of the Handicapped.
Cline, Dan, Ed.; And Others
This compilation of training objectives was designed to assist in developing needs assessments and in designing inservice training programs for teachers of handicapped children. Documents on competencies were collected from the National Inservice Network (NIN) training programs for regular education personnel and from the Dean's Grant Network at the University of Minnesota. Documents were analyzed by special education administration doctoral students and by seven NIN project directors. It was decided to replace the term "competencies" with "objectives" and to list them under eleven broad categories of training priorities. Under each training priority, objectives are grouped by instructional units, then by training topics. Nearly 700 objectives are listed. Citations referring to NIN training materials are included for many objectives. The training priority topics are: (1) mainstreaming and public policy; (2) characteristics of handicapping conditions; (3) use of resources; (4) individualized educational management; (5) schoolwide planning, roles, and inservice training; (6) teaching techniques; (7) classroom management; (8) curriculum; (9) assessment and evaluation; (10) communication and human relations; and (11) professionalism.
