Process Education for Teachers.
Berra, Margaret; And Others
This document is the Process Education for Teachers Package, which was designed to give teachers an understanding of the learning process. The package contains an introductory booklet, a research paper, and 13 modules. The introductory booklet presents a history of the formation of the materials and the rationale for the emphasis on the "process of learning" as opposed to right and wrong answers. The research paper presents the argument that the end goal of process education is the establishment of those pupil behaviors most likely to produce continuing personal growth and effectiveness, with the achievement of these behaviors contingent upon the appropriate interaction of curriculum, teacher, pupil, and learning environment. Each module represents a single session of the workshop. Module booklets are organized to help workshop leaders prepare for each module and act as guides during the sessions. Each module has the following form: a) contents listing; b) rationale and objectives; c) a list of background reading, preparations leaders must make, and materials needed; d) the steps of the module, indicating the approximate time to be allowed, procedures to be followed, and instructions to be given; and e) feedback questions. Among the topics of the modules are nonverbal communication, natural selection, expectations, norms, and problem-solving sequences. (JA)
