Benjamin, William; And Others
This second volume contains the remaining program elements and support system models for the proposal described in Volume I, SP 002 147. One section is devoted to each of three "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 sections on the Professional Sensitivity Training Component and the Social-Cultural Foundations Component, which emphasizes educational philosophy and sociology, contain rationale, organization, and outlines of the instructional modules, each including prerequisites, estimated time, operational objectives, and description of instructional activities with flow chart. The outline of the Self-Directed Component, emphasizing individualized instruction and utilization of educational technology, includes justification and an operational description including facilities and staffing. A 20-page scenario depicts a hypothetical student progressing through the self-paced, 5-year program. Four sections present rationale and descriptions of the three support systems: program (including both development process and operation), information (including its use in management, measurement, evaluation, and research and dissemination), and organizational (involving cooperation of universities, school systems, and developers of educational materials). Included is a 143-item bibliography. (ED 018 677 is a related document.) (JS)
