Participatory Governance in Education: The Teaching Profession. Three Module Clusters.
Ashby-Davis, Claire; And Others
This document contains three module clusters on participatory governance of education and the teaching profession, written for use by teacher education institutions as instructional packages for practicing teachers pursuing graduate studies. In a general overview of the module clusters, a rationale for the program of study, cluster structure, instructional process, time allotments, and cluster prospectus are discussed. Module Cluster One, Developing Commitment to Participatory Governance, seeks to provide students with a means for developing commitment to participatory governance, through the study of eight modules on the minor role that teachers play in governance, ideal models for such participation, and a comparison of actual and ideal states. Cluster Two, Implementing Participatory Governance, provides in three modules opportunities for students to practice group dynamics techniques simulating those already used in participatory governance of the profession. Cluster Three, Achieving Participatory Governance, presents two modules designed to provide graduate students with opportunities to devise techniques for initiating participatory governance where it does not exist. Each cluster presents: (1) cluster topic description, (2) performance objectives, (3) rationale, (4) prerequisites, (5) topics within the cluster, (6) performance objectives within the cluster, and (7) suggested time allotment for the cluster.
