Outline and Timetable for the Development of an Observational Learning Manual.
Zimmerman, Barry J.
This paper is a proposal for developing a manual that provides preschool teachers with prescriptive guidelines for teaching verbal and conceptual skills with modeling. Several studies are cited to indicate the power and versatality of observational and learning (modeling) procedures in promoting the acquisition, generalization, and retention of a wide variety of conceptual responses in young children. Based on this research, a Modeling-Imitation Instructional Model is constructed which anticipates the flow of the type and sequence of decisions that need to be made when using modeling to teach concepts and associations. A flow chart details this process. The lesson format and an outline of the proposed manual are presented, along with a sample lesson. (SB)
