A Model to Create Instructional Activities Intended to Develop Student Concept Learning and Problem Solving Skills: A Modification of Gagne's "Conditions of Learning" for Social Studies Instruction.
Stahl, Robert J.; And Others
Robert Gagne's model as presented in "The Conditions of Learning" (1970) is modified, extended, and used to form a logical model applicable to planning and teaching the social studies. It is used to develop planning procedures and to sequence instructional activities consistent with attaining complex levels of student learning. Sample activities are provided for each of the five levels of learning: verbal association, discrimination learning, concept learning, rule learning, and problem solving. Each sample activity contains eight component parts including (1) focus, (2) learning objectives, (3) instructional set, (4) student directions, (5) student activities, (6) format of answer or decision sheet, (7) activity follow-up question, and (8) transfer readiness data. A similar model can be used as a basis for creating pre-objectives and test-items at each level. Social studies teachers and supervisors from three Florida counties found the modified Cagne model to be a useful construct for teachers who desire ways of teaching concepts and problem solving skills in intermediate and secondary social studies classrooms.
