The Development of Learning Modules for the Training of Content Teachers in Reading: A Focus on Process.
Brunner, Joseph
The purposes of this paper were: (1) to present a discussion of the uses of learning modules as part of a total effort in compentency-based teacher education programs, (2) to discuss the major components of learning modules in competency-based programs, and (3) to relate some personal considerations and concerns in the development and use of instructional modules for teacher-training programs in the field of reading. The sections of the paper include: "Competency-Based-Teacher Education Programs," which discusses accountability and the criteria of knowledge, performance, and product; "Instructional Modules in Reading," which discusses the processes of establishing a learning module; and "Some Personal Concerns in the Development of Learning Modules," which deals with the tendency to limit the post-evaluation component to the traditional paper and pencil test, the tendency for the developer to use educational terminology with which preservice teachers may not be familiar, and the need to determine if the learner learned.
