Mayshark, Cyrus; Evaul, Thomas W.
This book contains eight chapters by several different authors, most of them professors of health or physical education. Focus is on applications and implications of programed instruction for professionals in the health and physical education fields. "Overview of Programed Instruction" defines programing, its development and implications for learning theory, and compares linear and branch programing. Chapter 2 on "Theory and Designs of Programs" is itself programed to illustrate the two common forms as well as behavioral objectives and self examination. "The Case for Programing" discusses uses of programed instruction, advantages and disadvantages, teacher role, and programed movement instruction (PMI). Chapter 4 deals with the "Format and Hardware of Programed Instruction," Chapter 5 with "Pioneering Programing Efforts" in health and physical education. Chapter 6, "Other Uses of Programing Theory," suggests application of the statement of objectives, evaluation, and feedback of results to other forms of instruction. "The Challenge of Programing to Teachers" lists specific steps to follow in writing a program. The final chapter is a summary focusing on implications of programed instruction for future research, students, and teachers. Authors are Mildred Barnes, Loren Bensley, Robert Clayton, Thomas Evaul, A. Bruce Frederick, Cyrus Mayshark, Einar A. Olsen, and Mary Ost. (JS)
