USAF Squadron Officer School SOS is the first level in the Air Forces three-tier program of professional military education. The mission of SOS is to provide for the professional development of company grade officers so they can better perform and value their roles in the conduct and support of combat operations and other Air Force missions. The SOS nonresident program director wanted to review one of the lessons on the adversary threat. This project was an effort to specifically identify what was desired, and then to develop an article, if necessary, written for that identified purpose. Because this article was for inclusion in the SOS nonresident course curriculum, the use of a methodology known as Instructional Systems Development ISD was required. This paper Documents the five steps of the Instructional Systems Development ISD process used to research and write an article for the Squadron Officer School SOS Nonresident Program curriculum. The article summarizes and reviews Mao Tse-tungs theory of Peoples War. The ISD documentation, article, educational objectives, and sample test questions constitute a completely developed educational package.
