Fradd, Sandra H.
This instructional module is part of a project to reform current school curricula, improve instructional services for handicapped and at-risk limited-English-proficient (LEP) and language minority students, and provide innovative leadership in higher education related to programs for LEP persons. The materials contained in the module are designed to help in training personnel to serve this population, and are intended for use by consultants providing in-service education to teachers and administrators. This module, the last in a series of five, aims to develop the collaborative abilities of transdisciplinary teams. Topics include: the process and structure of transdisciplinary teaming; establishing the need for transdisciplinary teams; proactive school organization; designing effective interventions; understanding the process and the roles of team members; and using interpreters and translators. Each section contains a series of critical points to be elaborated on by the consultant, suggested activities for participant involvement, and masters for handouts or transparencies. A list of references and resource materials is appended. (MSE)
