A Fresh Look at Planning: A Teacher Planning Map.
Littrell, J. Harvey
Teachers are provided with a model and general recommendations for efficient and effective instructional planning. The model, a map, begins with an identification of the major concepts, skills, and attitudes to be taught. A graphic route is then charted for logical planning towards achieving these instructional objectives. Nine "mileposts" mark points in the planning process at which teachers should evaluate their route and make decisions about alternative teaching strategies. A list of nine questions helps teachers in making these evaluations. For example, at the first milepost, teachers are asked to evaluate the need for and probable focus of pre-assessment of students' knowledge and skills. The decision to pre-assess leads to milepost two while the decision not to pre-assess leads to ignorance and despair. A general explanation of the map and its rationale, and a list of references are included. (LP)
