Guess, Doug; And Others
The second of a two volume discussion of Kansas' statewide model for inservice and preservice education of teachers of severely handicapped students is the final report. An introductory section provides an overview of the project's goals and discusses the need for teachers of the severely handicapped in Kansas. Objectives for the third year of the project (regional workshops, modified inservice for teachers and paraprofessionals, and preservice for graduate students) are evaluated. The project's organization and coordination with other agencies are depicted in charts and tables. Summary information indicates that 39 teachers completed Master's degree requirements while 85 completed requirements for certification only; 27 modules in the teacher education curriculum were developed; and a procedures model for designing and implementing inservice education was developed. Extended appendixes include content of revised modules, an outline of the procedures manual, and various observation, management, and evaluation forms. (CL)
