Contemporary Trends in Teaching.
West Chester State Coll., PA.
This entry was submitted by West Chester State College, West Chester, Pennsylvania, for the Distinguished Achievement Award Competition sponsored by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. The Office of Student Teaching at West Chester sponsored nine monthly sessions designed to help student teachers, classroom and cooperating teachers, supervisors, college instructors, and other personnel to analyze their respective teaching and learning situations. The purpose of the sessions was twofold: (a) the positive modification of teaching behavior in the larger educational community and (b) the extension of its service to all segments of the educational community. Each session concentrated on a particular skill and the participants became involved in actual teaching-learning situations. The topics of these sessions were nonverbal communication in the classroom, interaction analysis in the classroom, inquiry, computer test analysis, analysis of teaching by video tape, intergroup approach to education in a multi-ethnic society, conservation and outdoor education, technical skills in teaching, and the affective domain in the classroom. Nine elementary and secondary student teaching supervisors conducted the sessions. (The report contains description of each of the topics along with specific objectives. Nine appendixes included guidelines for the topics discussed.) (BRB)
