A Model to Develop Student Concept Learning and Problem Solving Skills: Modifying Gagne for Planning, Instruction, and Assessment in the Social Studies.
Stahl, Robert J.
The purpose of this paper is to report how Gagne's model in "The Conditions of Learning" was adapted in order to develop activities, preobjectives, and test items for social studies concept instruction. One of the major problems in the field of social studies education is the looseness or nonspecificity of many of the definitions and terms which play such an important role in the planning, organization, and assessment of instruction. This looseness of definitions may contribute to a discrepancy between what teachers would like to teach and what they, in fact, teach. One way to improve instruction and increase student learning in the social studies is to develop precise definitions for the concepts used while simultaneously assisting teachers in the use of logical modes of instructional behavior.
