Instructional strategies are the heart of learning. Instructional strategies are the activities that are modeled, practiced, and then completed independently in various learning opportunities. As soon as an alignment between what will be measured and how it will be measured is defined, instructional strategies are considered.
For this assignment, you will be developing instructional strategies for the standards and objectives you created in Topic 2. Using the â€œInstructional Design Topic 3: Instructional Strategiesâ€ section of the “Instructional Design Unit” template, develop instructional strategies and assessments for one standard and one objective in each grade band (birth to pre-K and kindergarten to grade 3). Include the following in your template:
- Standards (one for birth to pre-K and one for K-grade 3)
- Objectives (one for each standard)
- Developmentally appropriate instructional strategies for each standard including, modeling, guided practice, and independent practice
- Assessment to ensure alignment, keeping in mind that it may need to be revised
In 250-500 words, describe the importance of modeling and guided practice for supporting instruction. How do they provide an informal check for understanding and allow for modifications during instruction?
Support your response with 2-3 scholarly resources.
GCU format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
