Tri-Partite Model of Teacher Training.
Adams, Paul R.; And Others
The paper is a product of the 3-year project, "Functional Mainstreaming for Success," designed to develop a model for instructional mainstreaming of handicapped children (3-6 years old) in community settings. The literature on in-service training needs of regular teachers teaching handicapped children in the mainstream is reviewed and a proposal for in-service training of needed teacher competencies is offered. The tri-partite training program features (1) ongoing general skills training, (2) student specific training (when the teacher knows prior to mainstreaming that a specific student will be joining his class, and (3) problem focused training which occurs after placement in response to specific needs. Tables compare the three types of training, and describe each in terms of tasks, responsible parties, objectives, and tools/aids. (DB)
