Statewide Staff Development Project: Learning Differences and Multi-level Classroom Techniques.
A project provided more than 800 adult educators in Pennsylvania with a wide range of staff development activities and instructional strategies for teaching students with learning differences and multilevel abilities in the same classroom. It established a model for staff development that built upon previous projects and used a variety of delivery systems that could be replicated in other locations and subject areas. Training was conducted in sessions held at the Regional Staff Development centers and at adult education programs throughout the state for adult educators, volunteer tutors, and professionals from other human service agencies. The "Learning disAbilities Newsletter" was used to inform participants about the availability of training and information about learning problems and instructional techniques. A toll-free phone number was installed to provide adult educators with direct access to the project trainer who would consult with project participants about their students with special learning needs. (Appendixes contain the project brochure and five issues of Volume 13 of Learning disAbilities Newsletter. Each issue provides updates on the progress of the project and covers a different pertinent topic, including the following: learning and avoidance styles; mnemonics; multi-level classroom techniques; handwriting; and attention deficit disorder.)
