RPISE Reporter, n19 Dec-May 1987-88
Each issue of "PRISE Reporter" offers a feature article on educating handicapped students and provides descriptions of other information sources, continuing and completed research, and promising practices. The December 1987 issue contains an article by Martha Thurlow titled "A Skeleton in Our Closet? The Special Education Dropout," which reviews the incidence of special education dropouts, the reasons for dropping out, and prevention approaches. "Accommodating Difficult-to-Teach Pupils in Regular Education through Prereferral Intervention" (Douglas Fuchs et al., February 1988) defines prereferral intervention and describes its implementation through the use of Mainstream Assistance Teams whose members serve as consultants to classroom teachers. Larry Maheady's March 1988 paper called "Developing Academic and Social Competence Using Peer-Mediated Instruction" offers a rationale supporting social behavior training and outlines two cooperative peer-mediated approaches--classwide peer tutoring and classwide student tutoring teams. In "AIDS Education for Students with Special Needs" (April 1988), Deborah Klein Walker and JoEllen Tarallo provide an overview of the epidemic of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS); describe students at risk; and discuss teaching strategies, curriculum issues, and staff issues. Perry Zirkel (May 1988) provides an update on special education law, focusing on discipline, attorneys' fees, "appropriate education,""least restrictive environment," and monetary issues. (JDD)
