Conceptual Issues in the Content/Strategy Distinction. Research Series No. 21.
Freeman, Donald J.
Three basic conceptual issues that underlie studies of the content of instruction are explored in this paper. These include the need to reach a common definition of the concept of content of instruction, to undertake a serious analysis of the taxonomies presently employed in studies of content, and to critically examine the units of observation employed. These issues, which cause serious communication problems among researchers, are discussed in detail, and suggestions for their resolution are offered. (Author)
