Instructional Model for Concept Acquisition.
Tennyson, Robert D.
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the feasibility of applying research variables for concept acquisition into a generalized instructional model for teaching concepts. This paper does not present the methodology for the decision/selection stages in designing the actual instruction task, but offers references to other sources which give in-depth procedures. Rather, the purpose is the presentation of the management model rather than the developmental procedures. The instructional model is designed according to conclusions resulting from research studies investigating variables hypothesized to have a direct application to concept teaching. Although the model specifies concept teaching, other types of behavior could use the same sequence, and probably a typical instructional lesson would include various types of behavior. The premises in this paper are that instructional design should be decided by theory as much as possible, and that design components should represent a parsimonious approach to development.
