A Guide to Educational Specifications for a Comprehensive Elementary Teacher Education Program.
Wiersma, William
The teacher education model developed by the consortium of Ohio universities contains 818 specifications which include in excess of 2,000 behavioral objectives. Each specification identifies the behavioral objectives. Specifications were developed within five broad contexts and apply to one or more of the six target populations involved in elementary education and the preparation of elementary school teachers. The model is predicated on the assumption that the elementary school will move in the direction of team teaching, specifically with the instructional organization of the multi-unit school or a modification thereof. Each specification is identified by number and coded according to a numerical code in terms of information contained in the specification. This coding process is designed to enable the user of the specifications to deal with them more effectively and flexibly in developing model programs in a variety of contexts. A process was developed whereby composites of specifications can be identified and programs based upon these specifications can be designed and implemented. An evaluative process was designed so that any program arranged in behavioral terms can be evaluated at a given point in time with provisions for prompt and objective feedback for program self-correction and modification. (See ED 034 076 for a readers' guide to the nine funded models.) (LP)
