Integrating Basic Skills into Vocational Teacher Education Curricula: Book 4--Change in the Public School.
Love, Cathleen T.; Gloeckner, Gene W.
This curriculum guide for vocational teacher education focuses on change in the public schools and more specifically, on how to help teachers understand: (1) the reform movement; and (2) the interrelationship between the reform movement and the movement to integrate basic skills into education. Introductory materials include a project overview, mission and goals of the curriculum, belief statements, curriculum format, information on preparation and time issues, definition of new basic skills, and a guide to lesson categories. This book contains four lessons: School Reform; Rules, Roles, and Relationships in Schools; Dynamics of Change; and Partnerships Involving the Community. Each lesson format is identical, and each category within a lesson has its own icon, for ease in locating the category in any lesson. Lesson categories are as follows: (1) perennial problem (for this curriculum, what should be done about integrating the new basic skills into vocational education?); (2) practical problem (action that can help address the perennial problem); (3) justification for lesson; (4) learner outcome; (5) instructor resources; (6) teaching strategy modeled; (7) lesson plan (content, new basic skills, process, application objectives); (8) teaching-learning interaction (introduction and steps to guide the teacher educator through the lesson); (9) debriefing strategies (options for summarizing the lesson); (10) evaluation options; and (11) individualized learning plan. Handouts are provided at the end of each lesson. An instructor resources section at the end of the book contains transparencies and handouts suitable for photocopying. (YLB)
