Ethnography: A Learning Package Approach.
Kassebaum, Peter A.
The development of an instructional package for use with selected readings in a cultural anthropology course at the College of Marin is outlined in this paper. Introductory material indicates that an effort was made to create a learning package based on formal objectives spanning the readings in the course text, to respond to student needs, and to facilitate course instruction through a learning package approach. Next, a survey of the literature examines works related to the construction and application of learning objectives and to learning theories and their application to curriculum design. Then, the procedures used in developing the learning package and enhancing its educational soundness are specified. An overview is then presented of the learning package, focusing on its utilization of self-instruction, modified mastery learning, broad and narrow objectives, performance activities, a rationale, and summative evaluation. Finally, a discussion of the implications of the development of the learning package and recommendations on the need to field-test the package are provided. The complete learning package is appended, including directions for use, a rationale statement, 5 broad and 208 narrow learning objectives, 208 performance activities, and an objective examination for summative student evaluation.
