Promoting Systematic Instruction through In-Service Education.
Villeme, Melvin G.
There is nationwide pressure by the taxpaying public to have teachers be accountable for what they are trying to teach. Massive inservice education programs may become necessary for school districts to equip teachers to cope with this change. Staff development in many school districts often consists of a lecture or speech by some "expert" on instructional problems. A better path is the use of systematic instructional techniques and methods on instructional problems. Since universities usually do not have well-planned programs that have been developed with the training of inservice teachers in mind, it would be advantageous for school districts to use programs that have been developed and validated through funding from the U.S. Office of Education. There is an excellent program available in many areas of the country that was developed by the National Media Institutes Consortium under a contract with the U.S. Office of Education. The program is a five-day intensive training institute that makes use of simulation, games, media, discussions, and programmed materials to train teachers in the use of a systematic approach to curriculum development.
