Writing Social Studies Objectives That Require More Than Memory: A Programmed Text.
Bruce, William C.
This self-explanatory, self-pacing programmed text will help pre- and in-service teachers learn to write social studies objectives. The text material is organized according to the cognitive domain structure as outlined by Benjamin S. Bloom, et al. in "Taxonomy of Educational Objectives; Handbook I: Cognitive Domain." There are six major sections dealing with knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. In each section teachers read about the characteristics of objectives of a particular level, study examples, take short quizzes, and write their own objectives. For example, in the first section teachers learn that a knowledge level objective requires students to recall information to which they have been previously exposed and to cite in similar form or to recognize the information when asked to do so. Teachers are then presented with lists of objectives--some containing examples of objectives at the knowledge level and others containing examples not at the knowledge level. They are then asked to read through items in a list to select those which are knowledge objectives. Finally, applying what they have learned, teachers write their own knowledge objectives. (RM)
