Developing and Implementing a Program (Professional Aspect).
Arends, Robert L.
This eight-part document describes a process of developing and implementing a competency-based teacher education program that considers the present teacher education program and provides for the translation of courses in a competency mode. This approach involves a delivery system built around the module, module cluster, and components. Part 1 describes the rationale for using the module cluster approach. Part 2 examines the entire system from modules through components and how these interrelate to form a program. Part 3 examines the format for a module and explains the different types of modules that can be developed and how modules can be sequenced to move from the cognitive to the consequential. Part 4 suggests one way to move from goals to objectives to modules. Part 5 focuses on the need for a taxonomy of goals to produce a program that meets the gestalt of teaching and provides an effective guidance system. Part 6 focuses on the supportive services to implement a modular approach and some of the problems that may arise. Part 7 provides sample module clusters to demonstrate an ongoing product. Part 8 lists materials available to assist in the development of a program. (PD)
