A Systems Approach to Teaching.
Kelly, Robert E.
The systematic approach to teaching provides a method for the functional organization and development of instruction. This method applies to preparation of materials for classroom use, as well as for print and non-print media. Inputs to the systems approach include well defined objectives, analysis of the intended audience, special criteria desired by the customer, analysis and use of existing resources, and a team of instructional system specialists, subject matter experts, writers, and visual specialists. Outputs are functional relations trees, functional block diagrams, a teaching sequence chart, and frames (a combination of words and visuals on a specific topic from the teaching sequence chart). The three step production flow consists of content requirements, content development, and use. Material is divided into levels of detail, so that the student studies only until he has reached the level he needs. At each level of detail, the material is treated as a whole, then in its parts, and finally recombined into a functional whole. Visuals illustrating the concepts are included. (EMH)
