How to Teach Effectively and Get High Student Achievement and Motivation.
Hodges, Daniel L.
Teaching methods are recommended for dealing with particular learning and study problems experienced by students using a format which includes a statement of the learning problem, a description of a method for dealing with that problem, correct and incorrect examples of the use of the method, and an explanation of why the method works. The problems identified include students' lack of motivation and difficulties in comprehending concepts or definitions; students' tendencies to set low or unrealistically high standards for themselves; discouragement and apathy resulting from failure or fear of failure; poor note-taking techniques; inability to apply learned skills; poor study skills or habits; and slow progress, missing essential points, and making continued mistakes. Among the methods recommended for dealing with these problems are the following: (1) state why particular information is useful; (2) alter the sequence in which information is presented so that basic skills are learned first; (3) include a statement of terminal skills or goals and the component skills which are required to reach them; (4) use positive and negative examples; (5) explain the standards for the actions required to obtain particular results; (6) clearly indicate the information that should be noted down; (7) provide students with the opportunity to systematically practice the skills to be learned; and (8) state clearly the problem to be resolved, the goal to be attained, and the benefits of attaining that goal.
