Behavioral Science Elementary Teacher Education Program. Final Report. Volume I.
Clinical Experiences and General-Liberal Education, two of eight major model components, comprise the major portion of this volume which also includes an overview of the program and a summary of all model components . (The remaining components are detailed in Volumes II and III, SP 002 429-30.) Sections I and II of this volume reveal a model directed toward behavioral objectives through the use of paradigmatic modules which can be individually programed and evaluated and which focus on the principles and processes of various disciplines. Numerous computer print-outs of the Clinical Experiences and General-Liberal Education modules are reproduced with discussions of the facets of both components. Included within the first component, which is designed to move the prospective teacher toward a clinical behavior style and which presupposes a clinic-school setting, are an interpersonal process phase and field experiences from initial tutoring of peers to full-year internship. The facets of the second component, which is concerned with individual fulfillment and citizenship, are discussed according to themes, such as the theme of music within humanities, anthropology within social science, and cosmology within natural sciences and mathematics. Syllabuses and references for particular themes are included. ED 018 677 is a related document. (LP)
