Franc, Lillian H.; And Others
This book is designed as a basic text for gaining an understanding of competency-based education. Part one presents an overview of competency-based teacher education focusing in particular on the instructional component. An outline of the general characteristics of competency-based programs is followed by a summary of the social and historical antecedents of the competency-based movement. Part two presents a rationale for the development of the competency-based approach in preservice and inservice programs. Sample module clusters are included. The concluding section examines the future of competency-based teacher education and its potential impact on the profession. (JD)
