Cluster subordinate skills for instruction. Assume the
preinstructional session is complete, you have already planned instruction for
main skills 1 through 4, and you are planning a forty-minute instructional
session for main step 5. The students are in the sixth grade, and they are
average or above average in prior writing achievement. (Follow an educated
hunch at this point if you are unfamiliar with sixth-grade students.) Which of
the following clusters of objectives would be best for the first forty-minute
instructional session related to main step 5?
a. Main step 5 plus subordinate skills 5.1 through 5.32.
b. Skill 5.32 plus subordinate skills 5.11, 5.17, 5.24, and
c. Subordinate skills 5.7, 5.9, 5.10, 5.11, and 5.32
(related only to declarative sentences).
d. All subordinate skills from 5.1 through 5.32.
