Discussions Forum 10: Developing Instructional Materials
Chapter 10 is about developing instructional materials.
In a typical classroom setting, the instructor plans and performs functional activities that we describe as being components of an instructional strategy and has responsibility for each student’s mastery of the objectives. In order to do this, they must develop instructional materials. Describe the BEST instructional materials you have ever created OR used as a student which your teacher/instructor have made.
