Student Group Analyses: Exercising Relevant Thinking and Communications through Guided Discovery.
Ruppert, James C.
A description of a teaching method which encourages student participation through small discussion groups is offered along with a sample group discussion guide and worksheet. The student group analysis technique is presented as a structured, competency-based method in which small groups of students cooperatively arrive at answers to a worksheet. The sample discussion guide and worksheet, which comprise most of this document, use a group analysis of advertising to present concepts in general psychology. The guide includes student instructions for completing the analysis and for evaluating other members of the discussion group. The worksheet asks the group to provide specific examples of how the psychological principles of learning, memory, motivation, and perception are used in advertising. (DC)
