  1. 1. Evolution of Instructional Materials DesignEvolution of Instructional Materials Design By: Prof. B.A. Mey Reynolds Panton www.meyenglishtips.blogspot.com Colegio de Limón Diurno
  2. 2. Introduction  The Florida Department of Education, who wrote Evolution ofEvolution of Instructional MaterialsInstructional Materials said that effective materials include certain components such as: instructional goals that are flexible, up–to-date and well organized information, appropriate reading level and vocabulary, effective layout, multidisciplinary content and development of insight and thinking skills.  I believe that teachers must work with the latest material, and try to incorporate the use of technology to keep students´ interest, since the world in changing day by day. Also, flexibility is needed, in order to adapt the objectives to the course necessities.
  3. 3. Responsiveness by Publishers  Begin with a literature review by the author and the editorial staff.  Create prototypes and gather continual feedback from teachers.  Much effort goes into supporting alignment with standards.
  4. 4. Teacher´s Manual  Practicality: clear layout, easy, durable and cheap.  Alignment: Content and activities align to students materials.  Coverage: Enough content.  Readability: Easy to understand.  Methods: How students learn the subject.  Assessment: Ways of evaluating learning.  Management: Classroom organization.
  5. 5. Visual Presentation  Presentation: Research has shown that firm lines are more important than typeface in ease of reading.  Organization: Materials presented in various media will be more effective than conventional classroom instruction when organized systematically.
  6. 6. Challenges  Controversies: Controversy arises because of different beliefs about how best to approach a specific subject area.  Inaccurate Content: Materials often do not give topics the treatment they deserve, contain factual errors or persist in presenting disproved concepts.
  7. 7. Alignment of Instructional Materials  Alignment within Student Materials: Alignment of content, learning activities, tests, goals and objectives improves learning.  Alignment within Teacher Materials: Alignment of a teacher´s manual with students activities of the content, sequence, pacing, and procedures for teachers.
