Reetz, Linda J.; Hoover, John H.
Intended for use in preservice or inservice training of regular secondary educators, the module examines principles of communication, assessment, teaching methods, and classroom management through text, an annotated bibliography, and overhead masters. The first section covers communicating with handicapped students, their parents, and other professionals. It explains the consultation technique of active listening and offers 11 oral communication tips. The section on assessment discusses assessment prior to referral, the formal assessment process, assessment to determine how best to teach a handicapped child in the regular class, assessment for grading (five levels of modifications are suggested), and achievement grade modifications on report cards. The section on methods for successful integration of secondary-level learning disabled students into regular content classes considers use of advance organizers, graphic organizers, memory strategies, methods for increasing desirable student behaviors, methods for decreasing undesirable student behaviors, and group management and preventative discipline. Also provided are 38 references, an annotated bibliography of 29 citations, and 18 overhead masters. (DB)
