An Approach to Instructional Management.
Skoglund, Frederic W.
The instructional management system of Glendale (Arizona) Union High School District is described. Efforts in this area are coordinated through six interrelated components: (1) a well-defined curriculum, with extensive review and community survey of learner priorities; (2) program improvement plans based on the Theory Z concept, in which the relationship is emphasized between overall school goals, curriculum objectives, and personal improvement objectives for students; (3) involvement of teachers in curriculum decisions and instructional management to assure continual feedback between curriculum planning and classroom instruction; (4) student evaluation based on extensive curriculum based pre- and posttesting programs; (5) a teacher evaluation system emphasizing mutual respect, clinical supervision, and objective measurement of research-tested instructional techniques; and (6) a staff development program corresponding to the teacher evaluation methods, emphasizing appropriate learning objectives and the Essential Elements of Instruction developed by Dr. Madeline Hunter of the University of California at Los Angeles.
