Learning How To Teach. A Quick-Start Guide for Vocational-Technical Education Teachers.
Edmunds, Niel A.; Smith, Clifton L.
This manual is designed to help beginning vocational-technical education teachers, especially those who are subject-matter experts but who may not have been trained in education, to develop the teaching skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Each of the 12 chapters is a learning module that uses an individualized, self-paced delivery system. Each chapter contains objectives, practical application activities, and a self-test. The chapters cover the following topics: (1) characteristics of students; (2) you as teacher; (3) an overview of teaching; (4) course construction; (5) developing course outlines; (6) developing instructor lesson plans; (7) developing student lesson plans; (8) the computer as a teacher's aid; (9) methods of instruction; (10) assessment and testing; (11) other methods of assessment; and (12) scoring and grading. Appendixes include a sample course outline, sample lesson plans, answer keys to the self-tests, and a list of 31 resources. (KC)
