Extractions: Abstract The A rizona C ross-Categorical T eacher Project, Project ACT, is designed to meet teacher shortage in LD and EBD and to prepare teachers for this new cross-categorical certification. Project ACT will prepare special education teachers who are highly qualified to teach in resource and inclusive settings as well as to educate students with severe LD or EBD in more restrictive settings. To assure the quality of the teachers prepared and to address the changing demands of special education teachers in public schools, the graduates will develop specialized competencies in three areas identified at the national, state, and local levels as important for teacher success: working collaboratively with general educators to meet the needs of students with disabilities in inclusive settings; educating culturally and linguistically diverse students including strategies for teaching students whose first language is other than English; and integrating educational media and technology into curriculum and management.

Extractions: Jan. 26, 2003 12:00 AM Arizona's supply of teachers is slightly above demand, with 1.2 available for every job opening through 2010, according to an Arizona State University study to be released today. "Conventional wisdom has been that there's a dire teacher shortage," said Rob Melnick, director of Morrison Institute for Public Policy. Instead, the study showed demand for the 6,880 new teachers needed each year would fall by almost 1,000 after 2006. The study is about teacher quantity, Melnick said, not quality. A thin job market makes it impossible to select the best teachers.
