Teacher Model; A Model to Guide Curriculum Development for the American Industry Project.
Sedgwick, Lorry K.
One phase of the American Industry Project was the development of a pilot program for teacher education. The decision was made to determine what kind of teacher was needed and develop the curriculum to produce this teacher. To make this determination a review of literature and interviews were conducted. Three kinds of criteria were most often used in research: student gain, rater evaluation, and logical argument. The data from the reviews and interviews were cast into a multi-cell two dimensional model for classification purposes. The second level of the model is a 2 X 2 matrix showing modifiable or non-modifiable attributes which were identifiable from authors' opinions or research data. At the fifth level some cells contain as many as 17 attributes. This system permits a rational classification of existing information and the storage and retrieval of new information on teachers' attributes. The classification model is applied to 29 references with a numeric code and a verbal description given for each classification which represent" an attribute at some level of specificity. Bibliographic items date from 1924 to 1964. (EM)
