A Specification of Steps to be Followed in the Design of Primary Grade Mathematics Lessons for Use in Individualized Instruction.
Lindvall, C. M.; Light, Judy A.
After reviewing the basic principles of instructional design, the author outlines a seventeen-step procedure for the development of mathematics lessons for primary students. The procedure consists of three basic components. The first is concerned with the definition of the unit, and steps in it concern the stating of objectives and analysis of tasks. The second component involves specifying the necessary steps in a lesson. Steps in this process begin with designing criterion items for the terminal objective and, working backwards, repeating this process for prerequisite skills until the skills defined should have been learned in a previous lesson. The third component provides for the sequential development of lesson exercises. The procedure has been used to advantage in the development of mathematics lessons for kindergarten and first-grade pupils in an individulized mathematics program. (SD)
