Employ the Project Method. Second Edition. Module C-9 of Category C--Instructional Execution. Professional Teacher Education Module Series.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This module is one of a series of 127 performance-based teacher education (PBTE) learning packages focusing upon specific professional competencies of vocational teachers. The competencies upon which these modules are based were identified and verified through research as being important to successful vocational teaching at both the secondary and postsecondary levels of instruction. This module is designed to prepare prospective or inservice teachers to teach by the project method, a method that involves a series of carefully planned projects or a single major project designed to be the focal point for all instruction and instructional planning. The module is intended to assist vocational-technical teachers in determining (1) how this method applies to their occupational area, and (2) what their role should be in implementing this method. Finally, the module is designed to help teachers plan and implement the project method effectively. This module contains three learning experiences to allow students to gain experience in the project method. Each learning experience contains an enabling objective, activities, optional activities, and self-check with answers. The final learning experience requires students to employ the project method in an actual teaching situation and be assessed by a resource person. Examples and resources also are provided in the module. (KC)
