Training Program Development for Criminal Justice Agencies.
Cheesebro, Deborah; Skinner, Gilbert H.
This manual is designed to assist in the development of a criminal justice agency training program. The first chapter is a discussion of various learning principles (motivation, practice, reinforcement, and learning transfer) and how they may help the trainer select instructional strategies later in the process. Administration, trainer, and trainee goals and objectives are specified, and suggestions for writing performance objectives are provided in chapter 2. Steps in the design stage of curriculum development (identifying topic areas, sequencing material, selecting instructional techniques, and selecting training aids) are outlined in the third chapter. Chapter 4, which deals with how to write a lesson plan, contains a sample plan and describes such lesson plan components as title, trainee population, time allocation, performance objectives, evaluation measures, classroom requirements, training aids, equipment, and subject matter outlines. A step-by-step approach for costing out a program (with attention to staff, consultant, material, audiovisual aid, facility, travel, subsistence, and advertising costs) is provided in chapter 5. (MN)
