Managing Time and Other Resources
Keep in mind that the teacher, as manager of the total learning environment, supervises the allocation, organization and use of essential learning resources. This provides the opportunity for adaptations to be easily incorporated into the daily routine, including:
- Instruction time or duration
- Learning materials selected for use
- Instructional personnel incorporated for support and assistance
Divide the daily schedule into blocks of time, and specify what activities will occur, when they will occur, and who will be involved in the delivery. When choosing learning materials, consider the validity, cost, portability, skill level, presentation sequence, input modes, modes of response, durability and overall attractiveness. Finally, if you feel it necessary, you may wish to get help from specialists, instructional aides, peer tutors or even volunteers.
