Instructional Approaches: A Framework for Professional Practice.
Saskatchewan Dept. of Education, Regina.
The purpose of this guide, designed to support a core curriculum model in Saskatchewan (Canada), is to: (1) affirm the integral role of instruction in meeting the objectives of the core curriculum; (2) provide support for teachers in extending their range of instructional practices and in meeting the challenges of major curriculum change; (3) provide curriculum writers with a design which integrates curriculum and instruction; (4) affirm the art, as well as the science, of teaching; and (5) act as a catalyst for further professional development. The document is organized into five chapters. The first is an examination of the context within which instruction occurs. Chapter 2 introduces a framework for instructional approaches and describes the components of the instructional framework. In chapter 3, the relationship of the adaptive dimension to instructional practice is described. Chapter 4 examines a variety of factors that practitioners must consider in the selection of instructional approaches. Chapter 5 takes a reflective look at the challenges educators face in the development of instructional approaches and the options available to educators for meeting these challenges. A "reflective questions" section is included with each chapter. (LL)
