A Guide to Georgia Educational Model Specifications for the Preparation of Elementary Teachers.
Johnson, Charles E.
At the core of the University of Georgia model are teacher performance behaviors. They are the basis of the trainee's learning activities throughout the 6-year program. The trainee moves through three program phases; preprofessional--preparing for paraprofessional services; professional--preparing for certified teaching; and inservice--preparing for specialization in one of 15 areas. During these phases, the trainee experiences learning activities through proficiency modules (PM's), which are manuals of instruction--available from computers, published documents, or the trainee himself--that guide him through individual study and group interaction toward acquiring specified behaviors. The modules are classified into "types" if they relate functionally and into "blocks" if they are to be used sequentially. Each PM also incorporates a variety of evaluation devices for pre- and posttesting. Data on the trainee's progress (and on the program) are kept in tape storage. Among the model's other features are laboratory and field experiences; multiple entry points and paths; reciprocal agreements with local schools, agencies, and departments; year-round education; and sensitivity training. (See ED 034 076 for a readers' guide to the nine funded models.) (LP)
