Selection and Evaluation of Reading Strategies: The Instructional Feature Analysis.
Anders, Patricia L.
Instructional Feature Analysis allows teachers to explain, articulate, and evaluate the processes by which students learn and the activities that involve students in those processes. To develop an Instructional Feature Analysis, teachers must first ask what processes their students need to engage in if they are to learn from a reading assignment. The teachers use these processes as titles for a column across the top of a grid and then list sample activities from which they might choose along the left side of the grid. To evaluate the strength of each activity, teachers might use a scale of 1 to 5 in each of the boxes. In examining the completed grid, teachers can see that some activities promote certain processes but not others. (Tables include a sample grid demonstrating sample semantic feature analysis--a source of instructional feature analysis--and a grid showing instructional feature analysis.) (MM)
