Removing the Redundancy from Collections of Teacher-Written Objectives.
FILMS, Albany, NY.
The author presents a systematic format for reducing variations between numerous performance objectives to their component parts, with the view that the teacher, student, and/or administrator will be better able to understand all the possible combinations that develop in objective writing as each teacher teaches in a personal way. Writing course objectives is seen as training in how to rewrite and update course goals. With a system of objectives refined into their component parts, each teacher can (1) style courses and sections individually and (2) modify classroom performance and expectations to reflect student and pedagogical variables. Written objectives are examined on three levels of applicability--general, behaviorally specific, and multidisciplinary. For illustration, eighteen general instruction plans are presented. One of them is expanded to show specific performance goals and processes, and criteria to measure their performance are detailed. (MJB)
