Training Teachers: A Practical Guide.
The five chapters of this booklet concentrate on the practical side of teacher training. Chapter 1 describes the nature and purposes of training and placement. Chapter 2 provides information on a direct and an indirect procedure for training, guidance on blending the two procedures, and on making the best use of the time available to both trainer and trainee. Chapter 3 describes numerous training methods that can be used during either training or placement; some are based on teacher thinking and others on practice in various kinds of teaching. Chapter 4 explains the essentials of performance appraisal, outlining the three steps appraisal involves and explaining how to take these steps. Chapter 5 describes characteristics of a good trainer--competent, ethical, human, and caring. Four appendixes provide two case studies and further information on methods for evaluating training and placement, to accompany Chapter 2; an appraisal form, to accompany Chapter 4, and a comparison of appraisals made by two trainers; and a listing of background research studies. A list of references and some suggested works for further reading complete the volume. (AMH)
