Development of an Inservice Model for Implementing New Methodology in the Social Studies Curriculum. End of Project Period Report. Volume IV.
Madison Public Schools, WI.
The first part of this document is a course outline for "Inductive Teaching Techniques for the Junior and Senior High School Teachers." The method of instruction uses an approach suggested in the Taba Inservice Education program, and the class consists of conducting a situation as the teacher would in the classroom. The second part of the document consists of a schedule of activities for an inservice teacher workshop. Among the objectives of the workshop are that participants will: 1) evaluate their present classroom practices in terms of planning, techniques, materials employed, student evaluation, and activity evaluation; 2) demonstrate increased skill in the practices in #1; 3) alter perception of their role as classroom teachers; and, 4) delineate an inquiry model for use in their own classrooms. There are five separate units to the workshop, in which a variety of techniques and materials are represented. The five meetings are: 1) Introduction, Discussion of workshop objectives, and Pre-Evaluation: Geography and Sociology; 2) Planning-American History, American Studies, and Political Science; 3) Implementation--Black Culture; 4) Evaluation and Modification--Western Civilization, Area Studies, Economics, and Social Psychology; and 5) The Inquiry Model.
