Identification and Verification of T&I and Health Occupations Teacher Competencies.
Peterson, Norman K.
Trade and Industrial (T&I) and Health Occupations teachers are often hired on the basis of licensure or job experience, rather than educational attainment. To provide consistent preservice and inservice teacher education to T&I and Health Occupations teachers, competencies required for effective teaching must be identified and validated by practitioners. Teaching competencies deemed important by selected teachers, administrators, and teacher educators in Missouri were identified from a list compiled by the principal investigator after a literature review. These competencies were subsequently validated, and a determination was made as to whether they were basic or supplemental to vocational education certification requirements. A committee of selected teachers and administrators made these determinations. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education then formed the Industrial Education Professional Development Committee to establish consistent titles for vocational courses in the interests of statewide consistency in teacher education, and to group the competencies under the course titles for consistent content. Appendix 1 ranks the competencies by instructional area. Also attached is the competency profile for teachers with the priorities for each area. (SLD)
