Getting Pupils to Use a Variety of Mental Operations, Appendix H. Vol. II, A Plan for Managing the Development, Implementation and Operation of a Model Elementary Teacher Education Program.
Smith, Marilyn M.; And Others
One competency to be demonstrated by future teachers in the OCE ComField program is defined in terms of their ability to bring about a wide range of cognitive responses on the part of pupils, indicating that the pupil is using a variety of mental operations, which include divergent thinking memory, evaluative thinking, and identifying common properties or abstracting. The program identifies conditions believed to influence the student's learning outcome as 1) instructional strategies; 2) situational variables; 3) learner characteristics; and 4) the content carried by the instructional strategies. Learning experiences are then designed to enable teachers to establish these conditions. The demonstration of competence under either laboratory or practicum conditions requires evidence that all of the conditions that influence the learning process in pupils can be put together in such a way that the outcomes desired for pupils can be achieved. The examples of learning experiences discusses include orienting experiences, foundation exercises, laboratory exercises, and practicum experiences.
