An Instructional Model for Staff Development. Occasional Paper No. 11.
A description is given of an instructional model used effectively in an inservice teacher program on classroom management. Based on pedagogical theory, the model consists of four steps. The initial step involves teachers personally in the problems, issues, and topics addressed by the program. Step two, concept formation, consists of strategies used to ensure that teachers grasp particular theories, ideas, and principles that are rational, clear and compelling. In the third step, simulated practice provides for controlled analysis by each teacher in a closely monitored developmental sequence. The fourth and final step is the implementation of new skills and techniques in the actual classroom. (JD)
