Behavioral Science Elementary Teacher Education Program. Final Report. Volume III.
This volume completes the elementary teacher education model (see SP 002 428-29) with sections on Human Learning, Continued Professional Development, and management and information retrieval systems. In Human Learning, a model component embracing preservice and inservice education, five detailed course outlines in the areas of growth and development in the preschool child, educational psychology, and the social philsophical foundation of education are presented as syntheses of the multiple theoretical and philosophical points of view found in experts' opinions and research based studies on human learning (cognitive and affective) and the forces influencing behavior in and out of school. The section on Continued Professional Development discusses the objectives, organization, and differentiated staffing pattern of personnel (including extensive information on the Media Specialist) in a clinic-school network which operates with the theory-practice cycle. In the description of the program's administration in section 3, the interrelatedness and mutual support of the five subsystems (program development, evaluation, clinical experiences, management-planning, and information retrieval) are stressed. Section 4 develops the information storage and retrieval subsystem through all phases of the program. ED 018 677 is a related document. (LP)
