This document, one of more than 100 performance-based vocational teacher education modules, covers the following objectives as it prepares pre- and inservice teachers to develop an active personal philosophy of education: (1) after completing the required reading, demonstrate knowledge of the need for developing and maintaining a personal philosophy of education; (2) after completing the required reading, prepare a written statement expressing a personal philosophy of education and describing the behaviors one would exhibit as a teacher as the result of each belief; (3) after completing the required reading, critique the ethical standards implied in a 1927 teachers' contract and those stated in the 1975 National Education Association's code of ethics; (4) given a case study describing the actions of a particular teacher, critique that teacher's performance using one's own personal philosophy of education and ethical standards; and (5) after completing the required reading, prepare a written statement expressing one's own personal philosophy of vocational-technical education and describing the behaviors one would exhibit as a teacher as a result of each belief. After an introduction, the document contains an explanatory section on the organization of the module, required and optional learning activities, information sheets, student self-check evaluation forms that cover learning activities, model answers for the forms, and a form on which the teacher's performance on the module's terminal objective ("While working in an actual teaching situation, develop an active personal philosophy of education") is to be assessed. The information sheets cover education as a profession, matching the philosophy and the situation, maintaining a personal philosophy, the definition of vocational education, goals of vocational education, and principles of vocational education.
