Secondary Education Handbook for Students, 1971-72.
Southwest State Univ., Marshall, Minn.
This document is a handbook designed to clarify the goals and procedures of the secondary education program at Southwest Minnesota State College. The program is described as competency based, field centered, personalized, and systematically designed. It is stated that secondary education has caused special problems in that the competencies must be defined for all content disciplines. The instructional model for the Division of Education is illustrated and described. This model for instructional management can be used to provide a plan for organizing the curriculum for the teacher education program, for teaching these competencies, and for teaching once the teacher is employed in the public school. The model contains the following steps: (a) specify educational outcomes desired; (b) initially determine the condition of the learner; (c) select materials, activities, and reinforcements for the learner; (d) organize and manage learning environments; and (e) evaluate progress and assess the new condition of the learner. Several alternative plans for achieving teacher competencies are identified: ComPacs (competency packages), seminars, independent study, group projects, and measurable field tasks. The specific components and design of the secondary school education program are described in some detail. (JA)
