Matching Models in Education. The Coordination of Teaching Methods with Student Characteristics.
Hunt, David E.
This book describes models to coordinate student characteristics with educational environments, and describes how teachers can be trained to provide such environments. It is divided into five chapters. Chapter I discusses general characteristics of matching models, objectives, characteristics of the person, characteristics of the environment, and nature of the person-environment interaction, and describes three specific examples of matching models. Chapter II describes the rationale and nature of an early version of a matching model, based on work during 1960-65, and gives an example of its application. Chapter III describes a conceptual level matching model, which improves on the model in Chapter II, and describes several matching studies conducted in schools. Chapter IV analyzes the skills required by teachers who apply differential procedures. It then suggests the implications of the skill analysis model for planning training programs. Chapter V extends the model in Chapter IV to include "accessibility characteristics," and thus deals with both the form and content of teacher training programs. (Author/RT)
