Individualized Educational Programming. Revised.
Bricker, William A.; Campbell, Philippa H.
The manual is designed to help teachers develop effective and efficient individual educational plans for severely handicapped children. Initial sections explain the four major parts of educational programing (short- and long-term objectives, an instructional plan, and a means of monitoring progress) and the importance of a problem-oriented system. Subsequent sections address the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): selecting programing dimensions (instructional domains), determining programing objectives, motivating behavior (functional versus contrived consequences), selecting specific programing targets (maintaining behavior), and programing learning activities (flowcharting instructions). Also addressed are such programing components as the test-teach system, strong inference testing, data-based decision making, and classroom organization. Appended are sample sheets for recording various data. (SW)
