First Coast Urban Academy for Excellence in Teaching. [Videotape.]
University of North Florida, Jacksonville. Coll. of Education and Human Services.
This package contains four videotapes: "Process-Oriented Learning" (27 minutes); "Developing Cooperative Citizens" (23 minutes); "Culturally Sensitive Learning" (27 minutes); and "Technologically Competent Learning" (16 minutes). The videotapes are accompanied by a 23-page manual, "Guidelines for the Use of Video Episodes." This material presents some of the outcomes of the First Coast Urban Academy for Excellence in Teaching, a professional development model designed to promote the professional growth of teachers in urban settings and the implementation of Florida Blueprint 2000. The Academy was collaboratively developed by University of North Florida, Duval County Public Schools, and Duval Teachers United. Theme-centered work groups developed student performance indicators (SPI), used to demonstrate student mastery of instructional goals, and targeted instructional strategies (TIS). The videotaped episodes included in this package illustrate teachers' attempts to implement TIS. Each episode begins with an interview in which the teacher describes her goals for the lesson and the thinking that guided her planning. The interview is followed by a live, unrehearsed classroom lesson conducted by the teacher. For each videotape, the companion guide summarizes the overall goal of the particular episode's theme, lists SPI and TIS, provides a lesson overview, supplies an observation rubric designed to gather information for subsequent discussion, and a list of references.
