A Model Framework for Course Materials Construction. Third Edition.
Schlenker, Richard M.
A model framework for course materials construction is presented as an aid to Coast Guard course writers and coordinators, curriculum developers, and instructors who must modify a course or draft a new one. The model assumes that the instructor or other designated person has: (1) completed a task analysis which identifies the competencies, skills or behaviors which then become the terminal objectives of the course, and (2) developed a curriculum outline based upon these terminal objectives. The framework consists of an instructor's guide and a student's guide. Specific items which must be included in each of these guides are outlined using an existing course manual as an illustrative example. The instructor's guide lists approximately 20 items for inclusion such as forward, course scope, class schedule, pre- and post-tests, references and handouts. Information is also provided on how the guides should be written in terms of format, type spacing, and lettering and numbering. (DC)
