Improving Student Achievement through a Systematic Instructional Monitoring Plan.
Mahan, David J.
Based on four very basic but important premises, the Instructional Monitoring Plan has resulted in significant learning gains by middle school students in the St. Louis (Missouri) public school system. First, the staff must define what is to be taught by the teacher and learned by the students. Second, all faculty members must be aware of the curriculum that is to be taught. Third, a plan with specific objectives and timetables to teach the curriculum must be developed. And fourth, continuous and intense supervision must be carried out by the instructional leader of the school: the principal. The success of the plan requires a commitment to improve, a systematic process of defining curriculum and instructional activities, and an extensive commitment of time by school administrators to direct involvement in leadership on a daily basis and ensure that the plan is carried out at all levels of the educational system. Included in the appendix are charts showing the correlation between California Achievement Test category objectives and the curriculum of the school system. (KM)
