Winnick, Joseph P., Ed.; Hurwitz, Jan, Ed.
The monograph reports on a 3-year project to develop competencies in physical education teachers for dealing with mainstream exceptional students. Results of a survey of physical educators on the types of competencies needed to teach in mainstreamed settings are presented. Adjustments made to the undergraduate physical education program at State University College at Brockport (New York) are illustrated, and 23 competencies associated with mainstreaming are set forth. Principles and guidelines for individualizing instruction are reviewed. The largest part of the monograph (19 papers) present ways to integrate exceptional students in specific sports, including archery, backpacking, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, soccer, snow skiing, racquetball, tennis, and swimming. Two papers on evaluation of the mainstreaming subcomponent conclude the volume. (CL)
