The Taxonomic Instruction Project: A Manual of Principles and Practices Pertaining to the Strategies of Instruction. Second Report.
Brodack, Joseph; And Others
Intended as an instructional guideline, the last of three reports on taxonomic instruction explains strategy development and use in instruction. The instructional content is reading, with a target population of emotionally disturbed, underachieving students. Strategies are defined as instructional actions resulting from a process of experimentation and hypothesis testing by the teacher. The taxonomy is intended, therefore, as an organizing index for instructional behavior of teachers. The content of reading is described as being divided into basic skills, basic subskills, and sequential levels. The reading instruction strategy is described as composed of settings of student grouping, modes of instruction, sensory modality input channels for a student's reception of information, and sensory modality output channels for a student's expression of information. Each aspect of instructional strategies is explained with examples of taxonomic strategies. Achievement of individualization and personalization in strategies is then explained. Included are different tests and observations used in strategy formation. Then four case studies are presented illustrating the decision making process in strategy formation. Concluding is a discussion on relationship of strategy use and formation to computer assisted instruction. (See also EC 040 216 and EC 040 217.) (CB)
