AN INTERMEDIATE COLLEGE COURSE IN PERCEPTION AND JUDGMENT DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE RANGE AND INTENSITY OF STUDENT PARTICIPATION.
PERLOE, SIDNEY I.
THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO INCREASE THE DEGREE OF ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN THE LEARNING OF CONTENT AND METHODS IN THE AREAS OF PERCEPTION AND JUDGMENT. TWO TYPES OF MATERIAL WERE DEVELOPED--(1) READING NOTES AND WRITTEN LECTURES, AND (2) DEMONSTRATIONAL APPARATUS. ELEVEN STUDENTS TOOK THE COURSE DURING A 2-YEAR PERIOD. THEIR HELP IN EVALUATING THE NEW CLASS FORMAT WAS SOLICITED AT SEVERAL POINTS DURING THE SEMESTER AND AT THE END. WITHOUT EXCEPTION, THE STUDENTS SAID THEY PREFERRED THE NEW ARRANGEMENT TO THE CONVENTIONAL ONE. THE COURSE FOR WHICH THE MATERIALS WERE DESIGNED RELIES HEAVILY UPON ORIGINAL STUDENT PROJECTS WHERE EACH STUDENT DESIGNS AND CARRIES OUT THREE PROJECTS DURING THE SEMESTER. A LIST OF COMPLETED PROJECTS DURING THE TWO SEMESTERS IS GIVEN. THE LECTURES, READING NOTES, DESCRIPTIONS AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF APPARATUS, AND SELECTED COMMENTS FROM STUDENT COURSE EVALUATION ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIXES. ON THE WHOLE, THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH THE MATERIALS WERE DEVELOPED WAS ATTAINED. IT WAS FELT THAT A SIGNIFICANT STEP HAD BEEN MADE IN THE DIRECTION OF EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND THE STUDENTS APPEARED MORE INTERESTED THAN PREVIOUSLY. (GC)
