Long Range Planning Model. Management for Effective Teaching.
Fairfax County Public Schools, VA. Dept. of Instructional Services.
The Management for Effective Teaching (MET) Long Range Planning Model has been developed to provide practical assistance in planning for classroom management and teaching. The planning procedures were devised to help elementary teachers in the Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools implement the school system's Program of Studies. In the model provided in this booklet, the school year is represented graphically as quadrants (for each 9-week period), and objectives for a subject area are selected for each grading period. This planning process has been found to be most effective when used with the third through sixth grades and with subjects such as social studies or science. It has also been found helpful in dealing with strands of certain Program of Studies subject areas such as the literature and dramatic arts in language arts. The MET Long Range Planning Model incorporates integration of two or more subject areas to maximize use of instructional time and enhance learning for students. A list of selected references is included. (JD)
