Managing Learning Time: A Vocational Educator's Handbook. Special Publications Series No. 45.
Halasz, Ida M.; Desy, Jeanne
This handbook is designed to guide teachers, administrators, supervisors, inservice coordinators, and teacher educators in conducting time-use analyses. Discussed in the first two chapters of the guide are key concepts and definitions pertaining to time-use analysis and highlights of research dealing with time use in education. The remaining three chapters deal with the following three stages in conducting a time-use analysis: discovering how time is used (planning a time-use analysis and conducting observations); deciding what change is needed (computing time use, displaying results, and interpreting findings); and changing day-to-day practice (enhancing time use and developing action plans). Appendixes to the manual include an observation form and a series of worksheets on the following topics: computing and displaying time use, interpreting results, and developing a teacher's action plan. A list of references concludes the guide. (MN)
