Specifying the Instructional Plan.
Wesson, Caren; And Others
This manual outlines a process for preparing individualized lesson plans in reading that are consistent across time, to assist in determining the effectiveness of various teaching methods for use with special education students. Part I discusses components of the plan: instructional procedures and target skill, time spent on each activity, the pertinent materials, the administrative arrangements, and the motivational strategies. Part I also provides two examples of instructional plans, one for reading and one for spelling, and guidelines for practicing the plan-writing process. Part II helps the teacher decide how to make substantial adjustments in the instructional plan. Part III, the bulk of the manual, lists approximately 175 sample instructional activities for use in both beginning reading instruction and primary reading instruction. Both teacher-directed and student-directed activities are included in the areas of phonics, sight word building, listening, comprehension, structural analysis, fluency, and accuracy. For each of the activities is listed its purpose, a description of procedures (with variations), and necessary materials. (JDD)
