Discussion Guide for Film Clip Series--"The Team Approach in Education: Twenty Questions on Film."
Bowman, Garda W.; And Others
This discussion guide is part of a multi-media package of audiovisual and written materials designed to assist trainers of teams in a school setting, particularly for use with teams of teachers and auxiliaries (paraprofessionals). The purpose of the film clip series--to stimulate discussion that is geared to problem solving--is discussed, and the method of organizing the filmed materials is described: 20 brief, episodic and open-ended clips, from actual filmed happenings (not scripted or contrived) in widely differing communities and school situations, are arranged in six clusters based on ideas and issues central to team interaction in the school setting. Six general questions are suggested for use with each clip, and possible procedures and methods are listed for small and large group discussion. A brief description of each cluster stresses the principal issue to which the cluster is addressed: (1) various perceptions of the role of the auxiliary, (2) team self-analysis and planning, (3) quantity and quality of intervention required by teachers and auxiliaries to stimulate inquiry and creativity in children, (4) means of development of two-way communications between home and school, (5) gathering data for individualized instruction, and (6) career development for the auxiliary. Appendixes include a sample discussion of one cluster and information on how to secure materials in the training package (purchase and rental prices for films and film strip and availability of printed materials without cost).
