One of a series of 127 performance-based teacher education modules, this document teaches how to conduct a community survey. The modules are based on competencies identified and verified through research as being important to successful vocational teaching at the secondary and postsecondary levels. In addition, they have been found useful in the preparation of other occupational trainers. The document consists of the following elements: (1) a foreword that describes the development of the modules; (2) an introduction; (3) a section that explains the module's contents; (4) the five learning experiences; (5) the terminal (sixth) experience, which requires students to prepare for a community survey while working in an actual teaching situation and includes a form on which their competence can be documented; (6) a page that explains how to use the module series; and (7) a list of all modules in the series. In order to achieve the objectives in the learning experiences, students must develop a plan to obtain administrative approval for conducting a community survey, develop a plan to organize a steering committee to assist with a hypothetical survey, identify the geographical area in which to conduct a hypothetical survey, write letters to hypothetical people in local and state agencies and critique the performance of a teacher in a case study, and develop a complete plan for conducting a community survey using the background information given. All learning experiences include information sheets, case situations, and feedback in the form of model responses or checklists. Some experiences include samples and additional student activities such as letter-writing and budget-preparation. (CML)
