Quisenberry, Nancy L.; And Others
The 3-year Dean's Grant Project at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale was designed to: (1) create a set of materials and resources, relating to serving the handicapped, to be used in the training of teachers; (2) provide training for faculty on Public Law 94-142 and the implications of the law for training teachers and administrators; (3) develop and disseminate materials, relating to serving the handicapped, for use by students and faculty in the program; (4) involve in the change process personnel directly responsible for the program; and (5) integrate materials and activities developed by the project into existing courses and programs. The first year of the project was devoted to developing and disseminating materials to and planning activities for students in required education courses. The second year focused on the impact of the materials and activities on the supervisors of practicum student experiences, methods course instructors, and students. The objective of the final year was to familiarize administrators and other educational leaders with the needs, characteristics, and methods of instructing handicapped students. An evaluation is presented of the progress made in each of these 3 years. Appendixes include criterion-referenced tests used in the project, and a form for analyzing the experience of professional education centers with the handicapped. (JD)
