Competency-Based Teacher Education in Special Education: A Review of Research and Training Programs.
Semmel, Melvyn I.; And Others
The review focuses on the issues surrounding the use of competency based teacher education (CBTE) by special education teachers. An introductory chapter covers a definition of CBTE, historical background of CBTE, competency based teacher certification, and research in teacher education. A second chapter provides a review of teacher behavior research with sections on position and review papers, empirical studies, methodological considerations, and tabular summaries of research. Given in Chapter III are tabular and narrative summaries of 18 selected CBTE programs in special education. Among conclusions based on the program review is that the programs reflected variety and commonality in structure, substance, and emphasis. The final two chapters offer guidelines and suggestions for CBTE program development and revision, and improved research in teaching. (SBH)
