General Science Instructional Strategies: Leadership Guide.
Knight, Carlton W., II
This monograph presents six auto-tutorial units designed to be used by instructors who wish to improve their science teacher strategies. Emphasis is placed on the development and application of simplified objective classroom data gathering techniques. The population that could be served by their use includes: (1) Regular Elementary Teachers, (2) Undergraduate Preservice Teachers, (3) University Methods Instructors, (4) Supervisors of Student Teachers, (5) Student Teachers, and (6) Cooperating Teachers. Each unit is entirely self-contained. It includes an instructor's manual, participant study guide and the related video-taped materials. They can be used by individuals or by larger groups, under the direction of a workshop leader. Unit one serves to establish the background rationale and outlines the procedures for using the other units. In each unit, an introduction, a practice session, a critique procedure and a summary constitute the format. These units are: The Behavioral Analysis, The Question Directional Flow, The Question Response Time, The Response Reinforcement, and The Discipline and Verbal Control. A Leadership Guide is presented which focuses upon the technical and procedural aspects of presenting the Instructional Strategies package. (Author/EB)
