Models of Teaching as a Paradigm for Teaching Education.
Joyce, Bruce R.; And Others
A model of teacher education was developed as a result of a team project at Teachers College, Columbia University, in which substantive and clinical work were unified in a design constructed about a series of models of teaching. The design equips the young teacher with the theoretical and clinical capacity to understand and bring into existence a repertory of teaching strategies based on theoretical conceptions. Twenty-six candidates were exposed to the instructional systems built around three models of teaching during the fall of 1970. The models were Synectics, Concept-Attainment, and Group Investigation. The candidates practiced the models in the classroom in which they were student teaching, observers coded their teaching behavior, and the response of their students using the Teacher Innovator System. Behavior was also rated in terms of the specifications of each of the models. Samples of the teaching behavior of each teacher candidate were obtained when he was not practicing the models of teaching as well as samples of teaching episodes of the cooperating teachers. Tables indicate the many results found. A 29-item bibliography, appendixes, and illustrations are included. (MJM)
