Effective Use of Instructional Materials: A Training Manual.
Yarger, Gwen P.; Mintz, Susan L.
This training manual presents and examines alternatives in the use of instructional materials. The alternatives are based on a thorough knowledge of typical local district goals, school curriculum designs, and textbook selection policies and the way these factors affect the instructional process. An examination is made of how instructional strategies and materials complement each other and of how decisions are made relating student needs to the curriculum. Teaching styles and strategies are discussed, with recommendations for considering how the use of a particular teaching strategy affects time allocation and pacing, grouping, sequence of events, teaching style, and the need for supplementary materials. Teacher roles in the classroom are reviewed along with implications for effective use of classroom materials. The key to effective use is the ability of the teacher to monitor, observe, detect, supervise, determine quality, and advise students. The behaviors and procedures used by teachers make them the instructional leaders. A list of 24 recommended readings is appended. (FG)
