Selected Teacher Performance Specifications Generally Applicable to Teacher Education Curricula.
Johnson, Charles E.; Shearron, Gilbert F.
This bulletin contains selected lists of teacher performance specifications regarded as generally applicable to teacher education curriculum for undergraduates. ("Performance specifications" are statements which describe particular competencies or competency requirements that a teacher should possess in order to operate at optimum effectiveness in a teaching-learning situation. Performance specifications generally applicable to all teachers were selected from those concerned with the performance of elementary teachers.) Rationale and procedures are described for the development of specifications based on actual teaching behavior. Classification of the specifications is based on the Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Each of the 224 desired behaviors in the main listing is classified according to the highest level of cognitive and affective development necessary for optimum performance in specific positions. Cognitive level categories are: 1) knowledge, 2) comprehension, 3) application, 4) analysis, 5) synthesis, and 6) evaluation. Affective level categories are: 1) receiving, 2) responding, 3) valuing, 4) organization, and 5) characterization. Sub-groups within the 224-item list are Cognitive Processes, Psychology, Pedagogy, Philosophy, Religion, Media, Guidance and Counseling, and Social Foundations of Education. A separate listing of 80 affective specifications contains selected personality characteristics generally applicable to teacher education curriculum. (JS)
