Developing Competency-Based Teacher Education Resource Modules in Literary Appreciation.
Hartswick, Donald Edward
This study involved the development of resource modules as part of a competency-based model for preparing teachers of reading under guidelines adopted by the International Reading Association. An advisory panel of experts provided suggestions for developing modules at three levels of competency: professional entry, advanced, and specialization. The suggestions found in the related literature and advisory panel comments were used also in designing tentative modules. A pilot study entitled "Developing Literary Appreciation: Young Children" was conducted with undergraduate students at the University of Pittsburgh. A ten week period for the pilot study was scheduled during the summer session in 1972. Each participant's particular interest in children's literature, background in reading courses, and specific entry point in the module were discussed. Growth of participants was assessed as they demonstrated the criterion behaviors corresponding to the competencies listed in the instructional module. Some of the conclusions reached were that curriculum materials were generally valuable to the students, and that participants responded favorably to involvement in the pilot study and to the potentialities of competency-based programs.
