Developmental Teacher Competency Checklist. Careers in Integrated Early Childhood Programs.
Gorelick, Molly C.
The developmental teacher competency checklist is designed to facilitate planning of individualized pre- and inservice teacher training programs for teachers of integrated classes of normal and handicapped students. The checklist, which is suitable for self-evaluation and for supervision, applies a five level rating scale to the following competency areas: classroom management, assessment, program design and planning, teacher-child relationships and management, staff and coworker relations, professional work habits, parent relationships, and community relationships and resources. Examples of specific competencies evaluated are: checking safety of equipment and materials and notifying director of problems (classroom management); analyzing and revising learning opportunities based on child's responses and needs (program design and planning); and providing for and managing diversity in the psychomotor domain in normal, blind, deaf, orthopedically disabled, and other handicapped children (teacher-child relationships and management).
