A Competency Based Program of Individualized Inservice Education.
DelForge, Clarence
This in-service training program, cooperatively developed by Haywood County, N.C. Public Schools and the Elementary Education Department of Western Carolina University, has six major points: 2) it is competency based; b) instruction is individualized; c) a team teaching approach is utilized; d) its design is a cooperative venture on the part of public school and university personnel; e) it relies heavily on the use of media; and f) it provides in-service training for classroom teachers, county supervisors, and university personnel. After important and desirable competencies are identified by the university staff and public school personnel, a training team consisting of a university staff member and four county school supervisors is developed. The university member, acting as team leader, is responsible for general orientation, pretesting of student competencies, and development of individualized learning programs. The supervisors assist in classroom supervision and in the evaluation of the competency level of students. The students in the program are responsible for evaluation of the competencies which they presently possess and for the determination of new competencies to be mastered. The program is now being field tested in the Haywood County, N.C. Public Schools. (HMD)
