Plan Instruction for Adults. Module N-4 of Category N--Teaching Adults. Professional Teacher Education Module Series.
Kalamas, David J.
This module, one in a series of performance-based teacher education learning packages, focuses on a specific skill that vocational educators need to create appropriate learning environments and to plan and manage instruction that is well-suited to the learning and psychological needs of today's adults. The purpose of the module is to provide the teacher with knowledge of how instructional planning is accomplished at different levels and the skills needed to begin to plan effective instruction for adult learners. Introductory material provides terminal and enabling objectives, a list of resources, and general information. The main portion of the module includes three learning experiences based on the enabling objectives: (1) demonstrate knowledge of conventional and competency-based instructional planning; (2) critique a given lesson plan; and (3) critique a case study on planning instruction for adult learners. Each learning experience presents activities with information sheets, samples, worksheets, checklists, and self-checks with model answers. Optional activities are provided. Completion of these three learning experiences should lead to achievement of the terminal objective through the fourth and final learning experience that requires (1) an actual teaching situation in which to plan instruction for adults, and (2) a teacher performance assessment by a resource person. An assessment form is included. (YLB)
