Directive Process. A Performance-Based Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program. Monograph 4.
Albertson, Kay; Payne, James
This monograph, the fourth in a series pertaining to the Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program at the University of Virginia, describes the highly structured directive teaching process. The foremost example of the directive teaching process is the Bereiter-Englemann model which is geared toward alleviating the language and conceptual deficits often observed in disadvantaged children, by using a highly structured educational environment. The seven major principles of learning and instruction which underly this model are discussed. A description of how the model functions in the overall program of language, reading, arithmetic and music and a discussion of the presentation and feedback strategies basic to this approach are included, along with depiction of the interaction patterns which evolve from use of the directive process. Module requirements and cognitive and skill competencies to be acquired by the student are outlined. (ED)
