Instructional Planning Simulation.
Massachusetts Univ., Amherst. School of Education.
This exercise simulates the planning of an instructional program for the second week of the sixth grade in an elementary school. The goal is to influence the planning so that the personal talents and interests of each member of the six person staff team will be best used in the planned activities. The six staff roles are senior instructor, instructor, two associate instructors, intern, and paraprofessional. The simulation is 2- to 3-hour exercise broken down into three phases: 1) orientation including study of the school handbook, short term objectives, building space, student achievement profiles, supplementary information on student attitudes, and descriptions of ten students; 2) first planning session, at the end of which the curriculum activities form for the week should be completed; and 3) second planning session, in which each person on the team will outline the activities he will engage in during the week on the Staff Responsibilities Form, and the team will also complete the room arrangement plans. Forty-five minutes will be spent in analyzing the simulation with the game warden. All the material used in the simulation, with the exception of the handbook, is included in the document. (SP 004 892, 893, and 895 are related documents.) (MBM)
