Resourcing: Handbook for Special Education Resource Teachers.
Jackson, Mary Yeomans
This guide for special education resource room teachers focuses on ways to balance the many conflicting demands of this role. The first chapter focuses on personal development with a "Personal Resourcing Questionnaire", guidelines for identifying goals and working systematically toward them, and suggestions for maintaining personal physical, psychological, and mental fitness. The second chapter gives guidance on being a resource to others in the resource teacher's various roles as salesperson/public relations person, communicator/collaborator, team member, liaison, disseminator, and time manager. The final section lists useful resources, including 34 toll-free telephone services, 11 parent organizations and resources, 7 sources of instructional resources, 25 professional journals, 31 publishing companies, and 31 national organizational resources. An appendix lists 14 references addressing the communicator/collaborator role. (DB)
