The Individualized Secondary Teacher Education Program at Brigham Young University. M-Step Monograph Number 2.
Baird, J. Hugh; And Others
Approximately 60 students have completed the individualized secondary teacher education program at Brigham Young University during its four-semester pilot period. Trainees are required to achieve the program's behavioral objectives which have been arranged in 11 units: administrative aspects of teaching, behavioral objectives, instructional materials and equipment, teaching methods, human development, microteaching, learning, curriculum preparation, student management, student teaching, and affective behaviors. Phase 1 is a noncoursed, integrated presentation of academic content. After being pretested, a student and a counselor (one of a team of instructors) select from the syllabus those learning activities which will help the student exhibit terminal performance specified in each objective. Each student is teamed with one or two others in his subject matter specialty, and together they write behavioral objectives and design and prepare learning activities and pre- and posttest instruments (some of these materials completely programed) to be used when they student teach. During this period they observe in the classroom in which they will student teach as a team (Phase 2 of the program). Students do microteaching to improve needed teaching behaviors and perform interaction analysis of their own and others' teaching sessions. (Included are the behavioral objectives identified for each of the 11 units of the program.) (JS)
