Providing Skills and Competencies for Beginning Teachers.
John, Martha Tyler
A teacher education program was developed to implement the competencies for nontraditional, career adults who have an undergraduate degree in a content area. The program features three main areas of instruction: (1) curriculum and foundations; (2) specialization area; and (3) application of theory. Each of these areas is presented through instructional modules, which are not separate courses, but include the essential elements of several courses. For example, the specialization area, Module 2: Communications, includes reading methods, diagnosis of reading problems, language arts, children's literature, speech, and social studies. Field experiences are required for modules, and research is emphasized throughout. The schema for the program is described in full and assessment for the competencies is also provided. (Author/JD)
