Bloom's taxonomy); deductive sequencing (R. Gague's eight levels of learning); learning activities (suggestions based on Bloom's taxonomy); terminal and enabling objectives; inductive sequencing of learning activities (problem solving); management systems (learning activity packets, learning centers, grouping, theme development, independent study, and contracts); and communication (conflict resolution, problem ownership). Worksheets are appended. (CL)
