PaCBTE Handbook; A Resource for Developing Competency Based Teacher Education Programs.
Craig, Sam B., Jr., Ed.
This handbook reports on some experiences with competency-based teacher education (CBTE) and is designed to serve as an instrument for self-examination and change. Chapter 1 presents 22 generic teaching competencies, which are a result of a reexamination of the 1973 Interim Inventory of 66 Generic Teaching Competencies (Generic 66). Chapter 2 answers the question, What can be done with a competency inventory? by going step-by-step through a process used by a hypothetical faculty to gain a perspective on its own efforts in role competency definition. Chapter 3 reviews research on teacher characteristics. Chapter 4 describes the design for formative evaluation of the Department of Education's PaCBTE program throughout its duration. Chapter 5 presents results from a pilot study showing the value that educators place on each of the Generic 66 competencies for the new teacher and where the competencies should be developed. Chapter 6 presents a detailed report on the 1974 CBTE program. Chapter 7 describes the efforts of the Bureau of Certification's Competency-Based Assessment Certification (PaCAC) program in wrestling with the problems of assessing the competencies of persons who are not graduates of approved teacher education programs in Pennsylvania. Chapter 8 reprints the Generic 66, including the inventory's source and the reference numbers for each competency statement. A "Glossary of CBTE Terms" and the "PaCBTE Consultant Group Directory" are appended. (Author/PD)
