A Model Teacher Training System; An Overview.
Snow, Richard E.
This report provides an initial overview of the Model Teacher Training System, the development of which is a major goal of the Program on Teaching Effectiveness of the Stanford Center for Research and Development in Teaching. Detailed explication of its development will be presented in subsequent reports. Separate presentations will be prepared for each system element; selection, diagnosis, and placement; programmed training; practice; non-programmed training; assignment and followup; assessment; and system revision. Provisional decisions have been made to focus the model system on the vestibule training of public school teachers in skills generalizable across content areas of science, mathematics, social studies, and English for grades 3-12. It is noted, however, that the training system should be of use at many points in a continuing program of preservice and in-service teacher education. Initial steps have been taken to clarify design problems concerning the particular kinds of skills to be included in the training system and the means by which the system can be made adaptive to individual institutional, and community needs. These design decisions and problems may also be the subject of subsequent reports. A seven-item bibliography is included. (Author)
