Conceptual Complexity, Teaching Style and Models of Teaching.
Joyce, Bruce; Weil, Marsha
The focus of this paper is on the relative roles of personality and training in enabling teachers to carry out the kinds of complex learning models which are envisioned by curriculum reformers in the social sciences. The paper surveys some of the major research done in this area and concludes that: 1) Most teachers do not manifest the complex teaching models which are required in most curriculum innovations in the social sciences; 2) It is possible to train teachers to acquire complex models of teaching but personality plays a role in the acquisition of these models; and 3) It is worthwhile to develop instructional systems which modulate training types to the conceptual style or learning style of the teacher. Tables, charts and a reference list are included in this study. (FDI)
