Although the idea has been with us for many years, unit teaching still essentially remains a largely unfulfilled goal. In all probability, this can be primarily attributed to the fact that the unit procedure has typically been both difficult and time-consuming to apply. Consequently, Transforming Traditional Unit Teaching introduces a practical, flexible plan that eliminates the disadvantages of traditional unit teaching. This modified format greatly expedites and simplifies the planning. organizational, management, and assessment processes of unit teaching so as to maximize its effects.

The chapters that follow present this new unit teaching approach in terms of its underlying theory, principles, meaning, characteristics, possibilities, and application. More specifically, this book

  • provides a general frame of reference by examining the basic concepts that underlie both unit teaching and the resource unit;
  • suggests how unit teaching can be modified to accelerate, extend, and simplify its use;
  • describes how the resource unit is constructed and applied in the modified unit teaching plan;
  • explains how the modified unit teaching plan organizes and unifies the learning objectives, activities, materials, and evaluation devices into a comprehensive, instructional management system;
  • points out how the modified unit teaching approach effectively accommodates the various abilities, interests, and needs of the learners;
  • discusses how the modified unit teaching plan can be used to teach the basic skills in addition to attitudes and understandings;
  • tells how the progress of the learners id determined and reported in the modified unit teaching format;
  • specifies how pre and in-service teacher education programs can be developed to bring about awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the modified unit teaching concept and technique.

Transforming Traditional Unit Teaching is suitable for use in both undergraduate and graduate education courses; in addition, it can be considered a reference book for in-service professionals.
