A Performance Curriculum for Teacher Education. The Second Annual Florence B. Stratemeyer Lecture.
Cooper, James M.
A teacher trainee needs to acquire skills which will allow him to make the transition from teaching theory to classroom practice successfully; these skills, based on observations of effective teachers and incorporated into a performance curriculum, not only help implement major goals such as individualized instruction and inductive teaching, but also include seemingly trivial skills (lecturing, discussion leading, small group organizing and directing) which will, however, impede the important goals if not performed successfully. The teacher trainee can be introduced to the criteria of various skills through videotaped models, which can be followed by microteaching. The trainee should also be encouraged to become a professional decisionmaker, deciding--working towards competence in the skills--when to use them in his classroom. A performance curriculum is also helpful for trainee should also be encouraged to become a professional decisionmaker, deciding--while working towards competence in the skills--when to use them in his classroom. A performance curriculum is also helpful for the trainee's supervisor as it provides him with a focus for evaluating as well as training the student teacher or intern. More research is needed to define the criteria of skills and discover the best ways of presenting them. (Outlines of Stanford University's general and foreign language performance curriculums and of the criteria for two particular skills are included.) (LP)
