Instructional Specificity and Outcome-Expectation in Observationally-Induced Question Formulation.
Rosenthal, Ted L.; Zimmerman, Barry J.
Spontaneous and model-induced production of a valuational style of inquiry was studied in 128 third grade children. Provision of a favorable versus a neutral outcome-expectation, and sex of child failed to influence the results. All modeling groups displayed strong value-question increases over baseline which, without further tutelage, they generalized to a new set of stimulus pictures. Four instructional variations, implicit, explicit, pattern (calling notice to an underlying similarity among the model's questions), and mapping (exemplifying essential features of the model's paradigm) proved to differ significantly in the postmodeling imitation phase but not in generalization. The conceptual and pedagogical relevance of the results were discussed. (Author)
