Open Framework Resource Kit: Writing Plans & Evaluating. Discussion Paper.
O'Shea, J., Ed.; Halliwell, G. L., Ed.
This resource paper for preschool teachers provides (for discussion) examples of written plans and types of evaluation used by teachers in open framework educational settings. A brief overview of educational planning and evaluating is followed by four examples of teacher's program planning at three grade levels: a preschool, an early education class, and a first grade class. Preschool materials include statements of the teacher's aims, a chart of general educational objectives, a sample weekly plan, an individual record of development, a record of parent and teacher meetings, large and small group weekly plans, evaluation notes and anecdotal records. Early education materials include a teacher's statement of aims and practices, a short term plan outline, a guide to relating key experience areas to subject matter, a daily plan and a checklist of concept development. First year materials consist of a statement of teacher's values and principles, guidelines for organizing the classroom, examples from files related to subject areas, notes on activity and self evaluation, and comments on parent participation. In conclusion, six processes used by teachers--and which are features of an open framework approach to writing educational plans and evaluating--are identified and discussed. (Author/RH)
