Clegg, Ambrose A.; And Others
Described in this document is a schedule of teacher behaviors specified as being most appropriate for preservice elementary social studies teachers. Pre-teaching tasks are allocated to the social studies methods class; teaching-learning and post-teaching tasks to the student teaching experience. The tasks, stated in behavioral terms, are recommended terminal behavior criteria for teacher candidates. Pre-teaching tasks involve: 1) planning activities that increase the scope and body of social science content and methods and increase pupil performance in cognitive and affective skills; and, 2) planning activity sequence, transitions, evaluations, and multimedia resources. Elements of the teaching-learning process are: questioning, discussion, use of resources, teacher-pupil planning, cueing, and reinforcing. These are presented in two sections, one focusing on the teaching process, the other on the learning process. The final behavior group, post-teaching tasks, defines the behavior of the teacher in the evaluative role. Appendices referred to in the text are: Examples of Pre-Teaching Tasks; Example of the Teaching-Learning Processes; and, Synthesis Model of the Teaching Learning Process Related to its Sources. (DJB)
