Development of Low Cost Instructional Simulation Materials for Teacher Education. Final Report.
Twelker, Paul A.
Two sets of low-cost instructional simulation materials for use in teacher education programs were developed, one dealing with problems of classroom management and one dealing with discovery teaching. An effort was made to expose students to certain principles of classroom management or discovery teaching before they used the simulation materials. Data obtained from the evaluation revealed that the Classroom Management Series left little to be desired in timeliness and credibility. Design-wise, improvements were indicated that would be expected to have a significant positive effect on strength, robustness, reliability, and affect created by the system. Changes made during the course of the project did not permit field testing of the Discovery Teaching Series. (An appendix, which constitutes about three fourths of the report, contains the student and instructor manuals for the two series, a field trial evaluation guide, comments on the Classroom Management Series from subject matter experts, media specialists, and students, and the implementation analyses made by three schools of education involved in testing materials.)
