Direct Field Trips. Module C-1 of Category C--Instructional Execution. Second Edition. Professional Teacher Education Module Series.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center on Education and Training for Employment.
This module is one of a series of 127 performance-based teacher education learning packages focusing upon specific professional competencies of vocational teachers. This module is designed to help the teacher plan and direct individual and group field trips that will enrich students' classroom learning experiences, spark their interest in the world of work, and provide concrete, real-world applications of their learning. It is made up of three learning experiences containing activities that may either provide background information or practice experiences, or combine these two functions. Upon completion of these experiences, the user should be able to achieve the terminal objective in the fourth and final learning experience. The final experience requires the user to demonstrate the skill in an actual teaching situation when that user is an intern, student teacher, inservice teacher, or occupational trainer. The learning experiences are based on the following enabling objectives: (1) demonstration of knowledge of the rationale for and procedures involved in directing field trips; (2) direction, or critique of the direction, of an individual field trip; and (3) direction, or critique of the direction, of a group field trip. The terminal objective is actual direction of field trips. (YLB)
