Background Materials for the Professional Preparation Component of the Undergraduate Program Leading to the Provisional High School Certificate.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Div. of Teacher Education and Certification.
The materials in this document describe the professional education component of the preparation of secondary school teachers in Kentucky as envisioned by high school teachers, teacher educators, school administrators, and representatives of professional organizations and learned societies. The primary impetus for the revision of regulations came from public school teachers in response to a perceived schism between public expectations of the teachers' role and their own preparation for that role. The eight teaching competency areas described here present a sequential curricular framework that incorporates basic principles of both theoretical and experiential learning. The competency areas are: (1) orientation to secondary education; (2) foundations of learning and human development; (3) generic teaching skills; (4) individualized educational planning; (5) teaching strategies and methods; (6) human interaction in the school; (7) the professional teacher in the school; and (8) student teaching. Within each area, minimum competencies are suggested, and field or laboratory experiences are listed. Thirty needs and concerns that had been identified by classroom teachers are related to the applicable competencies. (FG)
