Models of Teaching and Teacher Education.
Kilgore, Alvah M.
A teaching model is a distinct set of ordered steps or phases created to achieve certain outcomes. These outcomes are different for different models, although some similarities exist among certain models, thus permitting the formation of model "clusters." These clusters or families include the information processing family, personal family, social interaction family, and the behavioral family. Several models of teaching have been more heavily researched than others. Five of these models include: (1) Advance Organizer Model, developed by David Ausubel (1963); (2) Inductive Thinking Model, developed by Taba (1966); (3) Concept Attainment Model, developed by Brunner (1966); (4) Contingency Management Model, based on work by B. F. Skinner (1953); and (5) Self-Control Model, also based on the work of B. F. Skinner (1953). Each of these five models is described and an indication of its probable impact is discussed. Also discussed is each teaching model's relationship to a teacher education program. (JMK)
