Teacher Associate Program Competency-Based Curriculum Development. A Suggested Guideline for a Two-Year Postsecondary Program.
Overton, R. Jean; And Others
This manual represents the results of a North Carolina Department of Community Colleges project to develop a comprehensive teacher aide curriculum for two-year colleges emphasizing the development of competencies. Chapter I examines the history of teacher aide instruction in North Carolina, delineates the objectives of the advisory board charged with developing the curriculum, and defines terms. Chapter II presents a rationale for the project, reviews related research in competency-based curriculum development, and delineates project methods and procedures. Chapter III summarizes the findings of a statewide survey of teacher aide career opportunities in North Carolina. It also outlines the tasks performed by individuals in these positions, the skills required of them, and desirable training and experience. Chapter IV contains the curriculum guide, which includes: a statement of objectives; a list of required competencies and associated criterion measures; and course abstracts that identify prerequisites, summarize course content, and list suggested references. Chapters V, VI, and VII describe the role of teacher aide curriculum advisory committees; required faculty and staff qualifications; and requirements for facilities, equipment, instructional materials, library support, and liaison activities with educational associations. Finally, Chapter VIII describes North Carolina's secondary home economics programs, which include a teacher aide component. (JP)
