A Learning Activity Packet on Developing Learning Activity Packets.
Lee, Jo Ann; Busche, Don
A linear series of 16 skill-building activities is provided in this learning module designed to familiarize community college instructors with methods for developing learning activity packets (LAP's) that facilitate individualized instruction. The activities enable the instructor to: (1) determine a subject area for which a learning packet will be developed, including grade level, time limit of use, and extent of use within the classroom; (2) write broad and specific behavioral objectives for learning activities within the framework of Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives; (3) analyze the tasks necessary to master the objectives; (4) outline the resources and guidelines that can be used by the students to complete the LAP; (5) decide whether to use a linear or branching format for the LAP; (6) determine the appropriate sequence of the learning objectives; (7) construct pre- and post-tests; (8) develop learning activities using a variety of cues, typing styles and sizes, graphics, illustrations, and cartoons; (9) write an introduction and rationale for the packet as a guide to the student; and (10) field test the LAP. The learning module itself includes pre- and post-tests, as well as several self-checking exercises designed to monitor the learning progress of the instructor. (JP)
