[Science Modules: Teaching Tactics, Questioning Techniques, Planning Short-Term Teaching Strategies, and Planning Long-Term Teaching Strategies.]
Oana, Robert G.; Eiszler, Charles F.
Presented are four modules (from Appendix A), developed for a study at Central Michigan University, focusing on competency-based materials in science methods education for elementary school teachers. The Teaching Tactics Module is an attempt to combine process teaching skills and inquiry. Four teaching tactics are emphasized: initiating, focusing, extending, and terminating. The Questioning Techniques Module is based on the seven categories of questions as identified by Sanders in "Classroom Questions: What Kinds?" and is designed to provide experience in formulating and in classifying cognitive questions. The Short-Term Teaching Strategies Module focuses on constructing a daily lesson plan while the Long-Term Module is designed to cause the preservice teachers to plan and develop a resource unit to be used for a minimum of four weeks.
