[The Secondary Data Based Classroom Model.]
Toews, Jane; Fredericks, Bud
Teaching Research, v11 n2 Dec 1982
The newsletter describes a data based classroom for secondary moderately and severely handicapped students. The curriculum is said to reflect a shift from traditional academic to functional skills and leisure time activity, with the classroom environment matching this functional approach. Teaching methods stress modeling, cueing, and correcting responses with total task analysis. Classroom communication takes the form of a clipboard system with information on individual students' programs, task analysis, and data collection sheets. Volunteers, some of whom are students, play an important role in the approach. Parents also volunteer so that they can learn to teach complicated skills and help their child generalize new skills to the home environment. (CL)
