Empowerment of the General Educator through Effective Teaching Strategies.
Bradley, Dianne F.; And Others
Johns Hopkins University and Montgomery County Public Schools, Maryland, jointly sponsor the program "SUPPORTS for Least Restrictive Environment," a graduate program in special education which supports the vision of educating all students together in the general education classroom. In the practicum phase of their program, general education teachers, in conjunction with a special educator in their building, included students with mild, moderate, and severe learning disabilities in their classes. They implemented strategies which resulted in positive changes in the academic and social achievement as well as positive changes in behavior of students with learning disabilities in general education settings. These academic interventions involved implementation of cooperative learning in a sixth grade science class, team teaching and cooperative learning in a third grade science class, and classwide peer tutoring in a second grade math and spelling class and a first grade reading class. Teachers also implemented behavior change strategies, focusing on remaining on task, completing classroom assignments, remaining seated during instruction, and exhibiting greater self-control. Through the use of effective and inclusive practices, these educators brought about positive changes in the academic, attitudinal, and behavioral achievement of students with learning disabilities in general education settings. Appendixes contain attitudinal surveys, pretests/posttests, and data relating to interventions. (JDD)
