A Model Approach for Effective Staff Development of Regular Classroom Teachers in Teaching Handicapped Students.
Shaw, Stan F.; Norlander, Kay A.
The report describes a collaborative effort to develop an inservice training package for regular teachers working with handicapped students. The effort drew upon work of the local education agencies (LEAs), an institution of higher education, and a regional education service center. The development of the training package is described. Two field tests were conducted and evaluation instruments were designed to evaluate participants' knowledge, skills and attitudes, as well as the scope and sequence of the program. Among post-project activities were training sessions for LEAs and followup evaluations of the program in selected LEAs. Twenty-eight references are included, as well as an outline of project objectives. (CL)
