Lambie, Rosemary A.
The final report describes the 3-year project CRITERIA (Chesterfield/Richmond Inservice Teacher Education for Regular Instructional Areas) designed to provide inservice training to regular elementary teachers dealing with mildly handicapped students in the mainstream. Goals and objectives for each of the 3 years are listed, along with accomplishments listed in chronological order. The project employed a multiplier effect, in which two grant staff trained approximately 170 trainers in teams of three per building who in turn provided 10-20 hours of inservice to over 1,500 elementary teachers. Evaluation findings are detailed for each year. The project was found to be an effective and economical means of training regualr classroom teachers in competencies needed to teach handicapped students in their classes for portions of the school day. Five inservice modules and one trainer of trainers module were edited for possible publication. (CL)
