A Competency-Based and Field-Centered Teacher Education Program in French: Teacher Competencies and Evidence of Achievement.
The foreign language teacher training program described here is competency-based and therefore assumes the use of stated assessment criteria. Foreign language teacher competencies are listed in three categories: (1) content area, (2) learning-teaching process, and (3) teacher-school-community and profession. The team leader responsible for evaluating an intern's performance is required to provide supportive evidence for his judgements in each competency area. This evidence can include annotated interviews, annotated observations, video and/or tapes, and simulations and reports of cooperating teachers. Many of the competencies listed here can be measured objectively, others only subjectively. For those competencies which are most subjective, parameters of behavior are included to guide team leaders and interns. The SUNY Buffalo program leading to a provisional certificate in the teaching of French is described in detail. (Author/PMP)
