What Are the Major Aspects of Jordan's Economy? (A Learning Activity Package).
Sa'adeh, Jawdat A.
Arguing that learning activity packages (LAPs) should be implemented in the Arab world schools, the author discusses why LAPs are important, examines their components, and, in the bulk of the document, provides an example of a learning package dealing with the economy of Jordan. LAPs are important because they provide options for student learning styles, provide for genuine interaction between teacher and student, encourage the development of student responsibility, are applicable to all areas of the curriculum, and make teaching more enjoyable. The components of an LAP are: cover, introduction, objectives, pre-assessment exercises, body of the package, self-check exercises, post-assessment exercises, quest (follow-up activities), and a bibliography of sources used in developing the package. In the sample LAP provided, students learn about the effectiveness of agriculture and animal husbandry and the importance of industry and trade in the economy of Jordan. The activities are many and varied and involve students in reading and discussing books and journal articles, viewing films, taking field trips, participating in debates, doing library research, and writing essays.
