Techniques to Learning--25 Approaches.
Jekel, Jerome R.; Johnson, Robert E.
Brief descriptions of 25 different approaches to learning are given, along with examples of each, areas to which each might be applicable, and possible instructional objectives and methods of evaluation. The selection of methods is rooted in the following premises: that the purpose of education is to serve the educational pursuits of students; that every student differs in interests and abilities and these differences should be utilized and not submerged; and that since high school graduates assume adult responsibilities, their education during adolescence should provide training in responsibility as well as providing knowledge. Thus, while traditional methods are included, the emphasis is on flexible, personalized instruction, with the student making selections of areas and methods of study, and following them up under the guidance, rather than the direction, of a professional educator.
