The final report of Project TRAIN describes a 3-year collaborative project of Virginia Commonwealth University and the Virginia State Department of Education to provide special education inservice training for regular classroom teachers serving secondary level mildly handicapped youth. The project: (1) developed adaptive instructional training packets; (2) conducted five statewide summer institutes for assisting regular and special educators to adapt instruction for mainstreamed students; and (3) provided technical assistance to inservice personnel serving mildly handicapped youth throughout Virginia. Project evaluation indicated increased teacher competencies, positive attitudinal changes by teachers, and positive evaluations of institutes by teachers. The bulk of the document consists of appendixes including institute material/handouts, competency test data, institute evaluation data, maps of dissemination, and institute brochures, letters, and programs. Also appended are reprints of the following articles: "Adapting Lesson Plans for the Mainstreamed Student" (Judy Wood and Jennifer Miedehoff); "Adapting the Presentation of Academic Content" (Judy Wood); "Mainstreaming--Ready or Not" (Barbara Lowenthal); and "Adapting Test Construction for Mainstreamed Mathematics Students" (Jennifer Miederhoff and Judy Wood).
