Summary of the Georgia Educational Model Specifications for the Preparation of Elementary Teachers. Summary of the Final Report.
Johnson, Charles E.; And Others
The Georgia Educational Model program has produced a model for the preservice and inservice training of elementary teachers (SP 002 137). Teacher performance behaviors and a teacher job analysis provided the foundation on which the model was built. System analysis was the technique utilized for the program. The rationale for the development of the model was based on the hypothesis that an effective teacher education program is built upon the job which the teacher performs. The sequential development of goals, objectives, and pupil learning behaviors for the elementary school provided a primary basis for ascertaining teaching behaviors and, consequently, analyzing teacher jobs at four levels: teacher aide, teaching assistant, elementary teacher, and specialist. Finally, teacher performance specifications were developed that provide the objectives and content for the program. The project produced performance specifications for teacher competencies plus specifications for the selection of candidates, for program evaluation, and for implementation of the program including individualized curriculum guides (proficiency modules), laboratory facilities, orientation program, and extensive administration reorganization. (ED 018 677 summarizes the nine models.) (JS)
