The third section lists 25 questions to be asked and answered by the educator before writing instructional units. Covered in the next section are the following aspects of instructional development: writing content, performance objectives, subunits, self-evaluation activities, and pre- and posttests; confirming proficiency; evaluating instruction; writing at specified reading levels; promoting success; and maintaining instructional content standards. The next section outlines procedures for developing the format of instructional materials, including artwork, graphics, and production.
