The Proposed Elementary Teacher Education Program, N-6.
Williams, Ralph W.; And Others
This document was prepared by the State University College at Buffalo in cooperation with the Buffalo Board of Education and Buffalo Teachers Federation in response to a New York State Board of Regents mandate requiring that certification programs in the area of education must be competency based and that the skills, knowledges, and attitudes (SKA's) for each program must be specified along with evaluation criteria for each SKA. The program was organized into three phases that require the preservice student to develop competencies in four major role areas, including those of a Humanist, Diagnoser, Prescriber, and Implementor. A total of 303 SKA's were developed specifying the competencies required in the program, including a suggested instructional activity and appropriate evaluation criteria for each. An evaluation model was also prepared for the total program. The document consists of three major sections. Section I, "Program Information," summarizes essential details concerning the proposed program. Section II, "The Program," includes the conceptualization statement of position, nature and sequence of the program, and requirements for entrance. Section III, "Involvement," describes the agencies that were involved in the development of the program and includes such details as the program governance structure, the roles and responsibilities of participating agencies, and the program development and implementation reservations. Six appendixes present materials for evaluation procedures, follow-up questionnaires, and SKA surveys. (MB)
