Teaching-Learning Revision.
Britt, John F.
Traditionally, educational psychology has been a content-oriented course covering methodology, measurement, and learning theories. Recently, however, those in teacher education have been required to add a large clinical and field component to the course. An experiential taxonomy developed by Norman Steinaker and Robert Bell is flexible enough to include both components. This cyclical taxonomy is comprised of five stages: exposure, participation, identification, internalization, and dissemination. In this paper, use of the experiential taxonomy in an educational psychology class is detailed. Examples are given of the taxonomy's application with poetry, song, group discussions, personal experiences, and teaching models. Each of the stages is explained and analogies are used to illustrate each level. Key learning principles to be found in each of the stages are noted. Developmental stages and roles of teachers, learners, and evaluators who use the taxonomy are also discussed. (CJ)
