Specifications for a Comprehensive Undergraduate and Inservice Teacher Education Program for Elementary Teachers. Final Report. Volume I.
Benjamin, William; And Others
This first volume contains the rationale and overview, program organizational structure, and most of the program elements for a model intended to be adaptable by a variety of teacher training institutions for the development and implementation of such a program. (volume 2, SP 002 148, contains the remainder of the program components and models for the three support systems.) The section on rationale emphasizes the self-renewing aspect of the model, based on an intent-action-feedback process. The section on organization outlines a 5-year program structured around a series of seven program components which are process-oriented first and content-oriented second. The remaining sections present four of the seven "program components," (unified sets of curricular-instructional experiences each comprised of several "instructional modules," planned instructional episodes from several hours to several months in length). The Liberal Education Component is presented with rationale, organization, and descriptions of three 6-semester-hour courses in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The sections on the Methods and Curriculum Component, which emphasizes a problem-resolution approach, and on the Child Development and Teaching Theory and Practice Components contain outlines of the instructional modules, each including prerequisites, estimated time, operational objectives, and description of instructional activities with flow chart.
