Greenwood, Charles R.; And Others
The final report describes a project designed to provide classroom teachers with inservice training on the education of handicapped minority children. The project was a joint effort between the University of Kansas (Department of Special Education) and the Kansas City, Missouri, School District. Progress and accomplishments are charted according to objectives for each of the 3 years of the project. The project's dissemination activities, including a brochure, an audiovisual package, and a text on minority issues in the education of handicapped children are described. Field evaluation data from two studies are reported which involved 34 school personnel and 6 school personnel, respectively. Results are seen to indicate the project's effectiveness in increasing teacher awareness, knowledge, and classroom applications of techniques based upon the content of the course. Field study results were taken into consideration in revising the project products. (CL)
