The Anisa Model: A Comprehensive Plan for Educational Renewal. [And] A Summary Statement of the Anisa Model.
Massachusetts Univ., Amherst. School of Education.
The Anisa Model is presented as a way to educational reform and development. It is a scientifically based educational system that fosters a child's natural love of learning and helps him to become a confident and productive human being. Providing a comprehensive and interdisciplinary educational experience that will enable a child to develop to his fullest potential, the Model emphasizes moral development, the arts, the sciences, equal educational opportunity, evaluation, and individualized instruction. The Model identifies five basic categories of learning. The part of the curriculum that deals with the development of learning competence is organized around these five categories of learning how to (1) move and gain maximum control over the voluntary muscles; (2) perceive through the five senses; (3) think clearly, especially through problem solving; (4) exercise the will, producing self-discipline and the ability to develop concentration; and (5) feel and respond emotionally to any situation appropriately. Suggestions on how the Model can aid teachers, parents, and community are included. A brief history is given on how the Anisa Model developed. The document concludes with a summary statement on the Model. (Author/JR)
