Stating Instructional Objectives, 1st Experimental Edition.
Butts, David P.
This instructional module has three main goals: (1) to establish the need and functionality of behaviorally stated objectives, (2) to establish a common functional language by which to describe behavior, and (3) to generate ability to construct specific descriptions of the expected student performance. An underlying purpose of this module is to emphasize the importance of instructional experiences for students being directed toward intentional, observable behavior change. The general pattern of instruction is one of presenting the situation with as little instructor-direction as possible. Because of the diagnostic data available in the pre-appraisal experience, it is possible to determine which instructional sequence appears to be most appropriate for which student. The instructional format includes: Materials List, Pre-Appraisal, Instructional Activities (with approximate time for each), and Post-Appraisal. Also included in this module are: Performance Objectives for the Module, Rationale for the Module, References and Duplicated Materials. The population for which this instructional program has been found to be effective includes preservice and inservice elementary school teachers. (BR)
