Teaching Teachers Skills Needed to Implement Objectives-Based Instruction.
Higgins, Norman; Hegstad, Lorrie
Instructional materials designed to teach teachers some fundamental skills needed to implement objectives-based instruction are described, as well as the procedures and results of the initial tryout of the materials at Arizona State University with more than 400 preservice and inservice teachers. Participants used self-instructional booklets, supplemental practice exercises, and teaching skills tests for units on writing objectives, designing instruction, and assessing learning for competency-based programs. A course evaluation questionnaire was used to assess the teachers' attitudes towards these materials, and 78 to 89 percent of the respondents agreed that the course content was relevant, well taught, and that they had profited from the experience.
