Developing a Performance-Based Reading Methods Course.
Duffy, Gerald G.
A performance-based reading methods course at Michigan State University arose from the differences between traditional and performance-based preservice methods courses. Differences between the two types of courses are found in their objectives, clarity of communication, grading, unit of instruction, type of learning activity, type of pacing, provision for failure, assessment and evaluation, role of student, and role of instructor. The objectives of the Michigan State course specify the desired terminal behaviors, assess the student performance of each behavior, stress activity-centered responses, emphasize the application of methodology, and focus on individual progress. Evaluation of the program focuses on the characteristics of the performance-based course and data from questionnaires completed by the students. (Recommendations are made to stimulate further exploration into the implementation of performance-based methods courses.) (BRB)
