Elements of Instruction. VTAE Workshop 90. Final Report.
Lee, Howard D.
This document contains materials from a workshop on Elements of Instruction Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education (VTAE). The model used in the workshop was based on the teaching model resulting from the work of Madeline Hunter. The workshop consisted of formal presentations, opportunity for participants to put the content into their own words, and practice. Participants completed an evaluation form and rated each area above 4.5 on a 5-point scale. A four-page report is followed by these attachments: correspondence, a participant list, sample certificate, and participant comments. The largest attachment consists of the handout materials from the workshop. These are divided into nine sections: introduction; decision in teaching and introduction to elements; selecting objectives at the correct level; teach to an objective; monitor and adjust; principles of learning; lesson design; reference; and glossary. The section on principles of learning is further divided into motivation; rate and degree (active participation, reinforcement, anticipatory set, and closure); retention; and transfer. Each section begins with a list of learner objectives. Information sheets, excerpts from Hunter's work, and pencil and paper activities follow. (41 references) (YLB)
