McNaughton, Robert H.; And Others
This course is a team taught, 12 quarter-hour block course, which combines a general teaching, competency segment and a specialized subject area methods segment. It is required of all students seeking secondary certification and is supported out of the regular secondary department budget. The teaching competency segment has the following three interrelated phases: (1) design, development, and evaluation of mediated instructional units; (2) clinical focus on the improvement of interactive teaching skills, observation of classroom verbal and nonverbal behavior, and classroom management; and (3) human relations, including theoretical analysis of affective education and practical experience in values clarification. Specific changes that have evolved during the three year period include behavior modeling, movement from university classroom to secondary school field instruction, movement toward an inservice treatment for instructors, and production of particularized learning materials. The focus on human relations and affective teaching is concluded to have created a consideration of alternative teaching and learning models and concern for the individual learner. (Author/JBH)
