The Management of Instruction.
Tosti, Donald T.; Harmon, N. Paul
A new conceptual approach to the analysis of educational systems is defined. It centers attention on the instructional management decision making process, which serves to mediate the activities of the students and learning environment, so that much of the present confusion surrounding the design of educational systems is eliminated. Instructional management is defined as those events and procedures involved in the decision to initiate a specific activity for an individual student. Several forms of instructional management are identified, including: 1) aspiration management, 2) prescriptive management, 3) achievement management, 4) motivation management, 5) enrichment management, 6) maintenance management, and 7) support management. Appropriate strategies employed in each of these management forms are reviewed in this paper. Likewise, media as they relate to the implementation of various aspects of instructional management procedures are analyzed. Finally, the relationship of instructional management to individualized instruction and accountability is considered. (Author/JK)
