Alternate Learning Strategies: The "Why?" Askers. Occasional Paper No. 4.
Bunderson, C. Victor
Students ask "why?" questions in the survey stage of using TICCIT lessons either because (1) they have holistic learning strategies, (2) they are searching for familiar bases upon which to attach new material, or (3) they desire to find out what relevance the lesson has for their future lives. In the design phase of TICCIT, an effort was made to answer the "why" question as it relates to the survey aspects of learning by introducing material that showed why a particular lesson or unit was important. However, the teaching and proctoring staff of a TICCIT class have the responsibility to deal with the additional "why?" questions which can only be answered by perceptive human beings, and to prompt students in the use of improved learning techniques.
