Teaching, Interviewing, and Learning Theory.
Pines, A. Leon
The major claim of this paper is that teachers should acquire the skills of administering clinical interviews in order to improve their instruction. First, the concepts of teaching and learning are differentiated and analyzed. Then certain aspects of theories of teaching and learning are covered. Following that, the conclusion that a theory of learning is necessary lexically prior to a theory of instruction is drawn. Finally, the Modified Piagetian Clinical Interview (MPCI) is outlined and suggested as a method to probe and assess children's cognitive structures. Thus, the MPCI is offered as one technique which bridges both teaching and learning theories. (Author/BB)
