From Behaviorist to Constructivist Teaching.
Scheurman, Geoffrey
Social Education, v62 n1 p6-9 Jan 1998
Presents a concise introduction and overview of "constructivism." Constructivists assert that knowledge is constructed by individuals; constructivists advocate classroom procedures that encourage students to identify the subjectivity and biases of existing interpretations and to arrive at their own conclusions. Examines four hypothetical teacher roles based on different views of knowledge. (MJP)
