Precision Teaching in the Elementary Classroom.
Mordecai, James F.; And Others
Precision teaching is a way of maintaining accountability in a classroom, through letting children work on individually prescribed objectives without losing track of each child's needs and rate of progress. This goal is accomplished through taking a timed test of each student's performance daily, and recording the scores on logarithmic charts. The materials in this publication were developed for an inservice teachers' workshop designed to provide skill training in precision teaching. The main section provides step-by-step instructions for charting children's progress in reading on a logarithmic "Daily Behavior Chart." The following section shows how to use information gathered on the charts in making instructional decisions for each student. The publication also includes a rationale for precision teaching, a brief history of the techniques used, a five-item bibliography, a list of resource people, and an illustrated glossary of terms.
