Clarification: The Terms of a Schema for Insights.
Wilson, Robert D.
This paper proposes a schema that will provide the analytical clarity needed for generating insights into pedagogical issues and, consequently, for developing curriculum efficiently. The schema has four terms: learning assumption, instructional hypothesis, teaching technique, and teacher performance. A learning assumption postulates that an interpretation on the part of the learner will generate learning of some kind. An instructional hypothesis predicts the condition under which the learner's (appropriate) interpretation is likely to be secured. A teaching technique determines and projects the condition-corresponding behavior on the part of the teacher that is likely to trigger the intended interpretation on the part of the learner. A teacher's performance actualizes the technique and makes it believable, as an actor makes a role believable. The author discusses the details of the schema and provides examples of interrelationships of the four elements. (Author/VM)
