Teaching Causal Reasoning Through Cognitive Apprenticeship: What are Results from Situated Learning?
Hendricks, Cher C.
Journal of Educational Research, v94 n5 p302-11 May-Jun 2001
Investigated whether situated instruction would produce more usable, transferable knowledge than instruction abstracted from the context of its use. Seventh graders were instructed on causality under one of the two conditions. Teaching for transfer was also investigated. Situated learning increased immediate learning effects, but there were no differences on the transfer task due to instructional condition or transfer training. (SM)
