Education 310. Social Studies Practicum. An Individualized Performance-Based Model. Pilot Program. [Volume 1.]
Piccillo, Peter E.
This is the first of three volumes on performance-based teacher education for students in the secondary social studies practicum and student teaching programs at Rhode Island College. These materials were developed in order to provide an individualized, competency-based teacher training program. The modules in this booklet, dealing with general teaching skills, were field tested in two high schools and revised in response to evaluations. In this teacher preparation phase of the program, the module cluster focuses on various teaching skills. Each module presents materials for a different skill. Module topics include: an orientation to the teaching profession; writing objectives; set and closure; facts, concepts, and generalizations; questioning; responding, verbal and non-verbal; small group instruction; lecturing; lesson and unit planning; and simulation. The format of the modules is structured around a rationale, objectives, pre-assessment, activities, and post-assessment. Volume II is SO 006 629; Volume III is SO 006 630. (KSM)
