The General Teaching Model.
Miles, David T.; Robinson, Roger E.
The General Teaching Model is a procedural guide for the design, implementation, evaluation, and improvement of instruction. The Model is considered applicable to all levels of education, all subject matters, and any length of instructional unit. It consists of four components: 1) instructional objectives, 2) pre-assessment, 3) instructional procedures, and 4) evaluation. The selection and specification of instructional objectives is probably the most important step in the Model. Once an instructional objective is selected, according to one of several possible models, it should be specified in behavioral terms which describe what students are to be able to do upon completing a unit of instruction. Pre-assessment is probably most essential when an instructor is beginning a unit of instruction and is unfamiliar with his students' skills, knowledge, and attitudes. In some situations pre-assessment for each unit may be unnecessary. The design of the instructional procedures involves selecting the modes of instruction which appear most efficient, selecting instructional materials, preparing new instructional materials when necessary, and developing a sequential plan. The most important thing in designing evaluative measures is that the instrument measure the identical behavior specified in the objectives. Limitations of this four-phase system for new "open education" programs have recently been recognized. Work is in progress on revisions for open education. (RT)
