Handbook for Teachers of Adult Occupational Education.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational and Career Curriculum Development.
This handbook is designed to assist occupationally skilled individuals to become competent instructors in their field. It covers topics intended to be of interest to new instructors during their first few weeks of teaching. The content is in nine units. Unit 1 presents an overview of the occupational teacher's job and offers some general teaching suggestions. Unit 2 discusses factors affecting learning, needs of individuals, motivating students, and blocks to learning. Unit 3 describes various teaching methods (lecture, demonstration, discussion, questions and answers, role playing, project plus report, personal experience, field trip, and case study) and discusses how to select the proper techniques. Unit 4 covers types, classification, selection, use, and effectiveness of instructional aides, such as texts, chalkboard, flipchart, and handouts. In unit 5, quality control is discussed, including pre- and posttesting, designing tests, the merits of five different types of questions, and teacher self-evaluation. The development, format, and evaluation of a course of study is presented in unit 6. Unit 7 covers lesson plans, performance objectives, and the four steps of the instructional process (preparation, presentation, application, and evaluation). Unit 8 presents the management and noninstructional teacher responsibilities, such as recordkeeping (including inventory and safety survey), and lists questions to help the teacher evaluate his or her activities regarding four areas of noninstructional responsibilities. The final unit reviews what is expected of a teacher and the teacher's responsibilities in working with students. (EM)
