New Dimensions in Teacher Education Inservice.
Maddox, Kathryn; And Others
The Multi-Institutional Kanawha County Teacher Education Center has developed new techniques in teacher education, initiated cooperative seminars, and explored and developed cooperative inservice programs for student teachers and supervising teachers. This document describes an "on site" program designed to improve the competency of teachers and to improve the quality of teacher education in schools designated as teacher education centers. The program deals primarily with the behavioral aspect of teaching. Each seminar is designed to model an "ideal" lesson, giving attention to early inductive or perceptual activities and culminating in a capstone or "doing" phase. The project was piloted at John Adams High School, a new suburban school with 968 students. The school faculty participated in organizing meetings preceding the actual course and in planning activities to meet the needs of their particular school program. The course was designed around the theme of "Teaching Behaviors," with an objective of sensitizing teachers to be aware and concerned with each unique student. The detailed curriculum for the course is included in the document. (MBM)
