Handicapped Services. Final Report.
The purpose of this project was to integrate into the leadership curriculum and instructional program in Pennsylvania the competencies needed to assist in mainstreaming handicapped students. The project also sought to provide inservice education to administrators and support personnel in comprehensive, vocational, and special education settings and to provide leadership staff development. To accomplish these purposes, a learning guide was developed to deliver the competencies needed by administrators to assist in mainstreaming. Inservice workshops were conducted to encourage interaction among comprehensive, vocational, and special education administrators. Inservice education workshops were also conducted for support personnel in these fields and staff development was provided for leadership program staff members. This final report includes a copy of the learning guide that was developed for the project. The guide contains six learning experiences with an enabling objective, activities, feedback, and a checklist/assessment form for each. Extensive appendixes to the document also include samples of competency and task analysis forms, an example of an assessment instrument, a copy of the summary of the feedback from reviewers on each instrument criterion, evaluation instruments for reviewing the leadership guide and a sample leadership performance assessment form, workshop materials, resource materials, a newsletter on mainstreaming, and other materials used during the project.
