Field Sensitive and Field Independent Teaching Strategies. New Approaches to Bilingual Bicultural Education, No. 5.
Herold, P. Leslie; And Others
This teaching manual is the fifth in a series designed for use in bilingual/bicultural programs. The purpose of the manual is to acquaint teachers with both field sensitive and field independent teaching strategies, and to help them adjust their teaching styles to the learning styles of their students. This objective is considered vitally important in creating culturally democratic educational environments. The manual begins with a number of exercises which indicate how easily the two teaching strategies can be mastered. Instructions for using field sensitive and field independent teaching strategies are explained, and a rating form to use in determining success in using either of the two strategies is included. Finally a discussion of curriculum indicates how the "style" of instructional materials can be identified and, when necessary, altered for use in field sensitive or field independent teaching. Observation check lists for both types of strategies are appended. A manual of self-assessment units accompanies this series. (Author/AM)
