Motivating Teachers in Training to Work with Career Path Training Modules.
Alvir, Howard P.
The publication is designed for use in teacher education and directed towards curriculum development in career education. The collection of 24 transparencies provides illustrations of the advantages of module building for a career paths course that involves specific objectives, diagnostic pretesting, alternative learning environments, and mastery post-testing in order to provide learners with packages of self-instruction. A pretest enables the students in teacher education to classify themselves as either "module builders" or "course choppers" in developing instructional materials. The "module builder" prespecifies objectives, diagnostic pre-testing, learning environments, and mastery post-testing in order to make sure that individuals receive learnable packages of self-instruction, while the "course chopper" is more interested in the external form of a module than in the opportunity for individualization. An analytical table of contents provides the title of the transparency and the function in order to effectively delineate the advantages and incentives of "module building," thereby demonstrating the disorganization of a "course chopper."
