A Prototype for a Competency Based Proficiency Module. GEM Bulletin.
Shearron, Gilbert F.; Johnson, Charles E.
This document is a draft of a design for a learning tool which is an integral part of the Georgia Educational Model for the Prepartaion of Elementary Teachers (ED 025 491). (The introduction notes that specifications for the model require that all instruction be related to teacher performance behaviors and utilize the proficiency module (PM) as the vehicle for organizing and presenting learning activities and materials. This prototype is representative of only one kind of module envisioned. It is designed to reveal the kinds of learning experiences that might be available in a PM for one small part of a professional sequence.) Titled "Graphics Representation in Social Studies Instruction," this prototype PM includes 1) general directions to the student; 2) lists of prerequisites (other PM's); 3) instructions for "preassessment" to determine the extent to which the student has already acquired the behaviors assigned in this PM; 4) lists of the nine general performance specifications for this PM and of 30 supplementary behaviors which the student must be able to demonstrate proficiency in; 5) instructions for making a learning procedures plan for acquiring the behaviors; and 6) lists of learning resources for each of five different groups of the 30 behaviors. The lists of resources (some items fictitious) include books, filmstrips, sound motion pictures, videotape series, programed materials, small group discussion sessions, and other group activities.
