Developing a Performance Base for Field Experiences: A Grass Roots Approach.
Merritt, Daniel L.
Following a brief investigation of the need for performance objectives specifying teacher behavior, this report develops a performance base for field experience. The purpose of performance objectives in field experiences and the relationship of these objectives to the student teacher, cooperating teacher, and university supervisor are discussed in detail. The development of performance objectives for field program is based on the following considerations: identification of clientele (groups) providing performance statements about expected teacher behavior; a survey of clientele to secure goal and performance statements; preparation of performance statements based on evaluation behavior, instructional behavior, planning and organizing classroom behavior, classroom management behavior, and guidance and couseling behavior; analysis and revision; field testing the performance statements; and legitimization of performance objectives. Finally, possible problems in developing performance objectives include intrusion resistance, apathy and a complexity maze. A four-item bibliography is included. (MJM)
