Instructional Planning : A Guide for Teachers - 2nd edition

Instructional Planning : A Guide for Teachers (ISBN10: 0205166148; ISBN13: 9780205166145)
ISBN13: 978-0205166145
ISBN10: 0205166148

Summary: Students in teacher education programs are regularly required to plan lessons and instructional units, but often receive little instruction on how to do so. This book (initially published under the title Planning Effective Instruction) is designed to teach students how to plan instruction and develop effective lesson plans. In particular, the book focuses on how to identify instructional goals and objectives, plan instructional activities, choose instructional
media, develop assessment tools, and evaluate and revise instructional plans.

Most students appreciate the systematic way in which the authors present the material and quickly see that the principles espoused in the book were employed in its creation. Thus, most students become enthusiastic about employing systematic planning practices in their own teaching.

The book focuses on a systematic instructional planning process that is clearly summarized in the first chapter. Each succeeding chapter provides in-depth instruction and practice on a particular step in the planning process. A simple flowchart depicting the process is presented in the first chapter and is used throughout the book.

The book requires students to actually plan instructional objectives, activities, and assessment instruments. As a result, students receive consistent practice and feedback in applying the planning techniques described. Moreover, application assignments at the end of each chapter build upon one another so that by the end of the book, students have had the opportunity to develop a complete instructional plan.

The authors demonstrate that they are well-aware of the realities of instructional planning and indicate how the suggestions can be adapted in light of a teacher's previous experience and the instructional situation facing the teacher. The book discusses many real-world instructional problems and describes how the instructional planning process can be used to solve them.

A simpler planning model than in the previous edition; takes into consideration the planning practices teachers typically employ and the constraints on planning that teachers regularly face.

Greater emphasis on the practical, real-world uses of the planning model.
