Evaluation of National Center for Educational Research and Development/Teacher Corps Competency-Based Education Development Project.
Fraenkel, Jack R.
This report describes a 1-year effort at San Francisco State College to incorporate as part of a Cycle 5 Teacher Corps Project some aspects of competency-based education in the instruction of the Teacher Corps interns. A 3-hour weekly course in curriculum and instruction occurring for the entire 1970-71 academic year served as the vehicle of competency-based instruction. Intern and staff dissatisfaction with the initially traditional nature of the course resulted in a number of innovative changes, the most noticeable of which being the formation of cluster-development teams, consisting of both interns and staff members. These teams worked jointly to design instructional modules and clusters (groups of modules), and to collect, store, and organize the material necessary for the implementation of these modules. Intern attitudes toward the Teacher Corps program were assessed both at the beginning and end of the 1970-71 academic year. A number of recommendations for developing competency-based instructional programs are given. An 18-item bibliography and appendixes are included. (Related document SP 005 815.) (Author)
