This final report discusses the activities and outcomes of the Interactive Peer Coaching/Mentoring (IPCM) Project, a program designed to prepare teachers of students with severe behavioral disorders (SED) residing in a rural, remote area in North Dakota. The IPCM project was conducted from July 1997 through July 2000 and developed an interdisciplinary program of courses that met North Dakota certification standards and university program standards. As a result of the project, 22 trainees attained a North Dakota endorsement in SED and an additional 6 teachers will complete the final requirements by the end of the summer 2001, over three times the current number of teachers in the area. A total of 48 trainees attained 1,152 graduate credit hours of university instruction, trainees completed over 150 sessions of peer coaching on classroom management issues, and completed 102 mentor experiences. The first part of the report provides a narrative commentary on the project's goals and objectives. Section 2 contains a more detailed description of the three major components of IPCM: the interactive component that used computer and non-computer based communication systems, the peer coaching component, and the interdisciplinary mentoring process. Appendices include project materials. (CR)
