Providing Special Teacher Education Services to Selected Vocational Programs in Minnesota.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
The purpose of this project was to develop and field test a model for delivering teaching competency instruction to inexperienced vocational teachers. An off-campus course was developed utilizing six individualized learning packages or modules based on 38 competencies considered most important for beginning teachers. Twelve teachers from the three participating vocational schools were selected to field test the course. Each group of three students received assistance and support from a local and a university resource person. Results of the field test and evaluation of the course by students, resource persons, and project staff provide the basis for recommendations for future planning of similar delivery systems. Included in the document are a bibliography, instrument for establishing competency priorities, course resource materials, and, comprising 180 pages, the complete texts of the six modules: audiovisual equipment and materials, writing behaviorally-oriented objectives, overview of developing and planning a course, constructing a lesson plan, planning and executing an introduction and summary for a lesson, and selecting and executing the different teaching strategies. Each module contains an introduction, performance objectives, references, equipment and materials needed, directions related to what and how to study, resource information about the topic, learning activities, test questions, self-evaluation checklist, and evaluation of the module.
