Concomitant Learnings: Hidden Influences in the Classroom.
Wallace, Sharon A., Ed.
This bulletin contains sets of learning experiences and emphasizes the multiple effects of classroom experiences. These effects are referred to as concomitant learning or the student's affective incidental learning. In an article preceding the area materials, the teacher is identified as the classroom's most important hidden persuader, and the teacher is urged to become aware of concomitant learning so that he/she can use it to achieve desired objectives and reduce the possibilities for unplanned negative learning. Following the article there are sets of learning experiences for the following areas in home economics instruction: individual and family resource management, early childhood education, expanding role options, family ethnic study, living environments, nutrition and foods, and textiles and clothing. All sections are organized similarly: Objectives relevant to a given subject are stated first; then a principle based on that specific subject is stated; and then learning experiences are cited which are followed by one or more possible concomitant learnings.
