The Field-Oriented Competency-Based Teacher Education Program at McNeese State University.
McNeese State Coll., Lake Charles, LA.
The McNeese State University's pilot program in field-oriented competency-based teacher education in early childhood education is designed for prospective teachers to develop and demonstrate competencies believed to be necessary for effective teaching in the early childhood area (K-3), as well as to develop evaluative criteria relevant to the stated competencies. The program is organized into two blocks. Block A consists of 16 semester hours of educational methods including corrective reading, science, social studies, and student teaching. Community involvement is necessary to allow each student two hours per day in the public schools in addition to his two hours per day in university seminars. Constant evaluation is of prime importance in the project, and revisions are made based on the evaluations of the programmatic system. (Author/JMF)
