Models of Teaching Internet Scavenger Hunt


1. Who developed an instructional model following the steps used in scientific inquiry to approach problems in general?  The model begins with the presentation of a puzzling problem that entices the students to discover the answer.

2. Who developed a very structured method of teaching that is effective for students who need practice in the basic skills of reading, writing, and spelling and who may also be unmotivated to learn content on their own? The most direct application of his writings is "programmed instruction."

3. In this model of instruction, the knowledge, skill, or process is broken down into small, carefully described components. Mastery is required of activity A before one can proceed to activity B, etc. Carefully crafted objectives, stated in measureable terms, initiate the learning process. Learning activities are followed by an evaluative measure that seeks evidence that the objective has been achieved.  Who is most often associated with this model?

4. Who is responsible for an instructional model that emphasizes concept attainment to allow students to first see the big picture?  Positive and negative "exemplars" are used as illustrations to help students develop big picture concepts.

5. Who developed an instructional model based on the use of real world examples to build an understanding of society?  This approach can be useful as an occasional teaching strategy to categorize information using the higher order processes of classification.

6.  Who is ackowledged as providing the intellectual underpinning for "progressive
education," which incorporated many of the models featured in this scavenger hunt?  

7. Who is credited with the development of the process called synectics, which uses group creative processes to create new insights through an "understanding together" process?

8. Who wrote the theory of multiple intelligences?

9. Whose work is instructive for the teacher during the task of formulating objectives for a given class?  He/she divided knowledge into a hierarchical scheme. The most useful to the new teacher is: Taxonomy of Educational Objectives:Cognitive Domain.

10. Who, along with his wife, is credited with the development of a model of instruction that employs role playing as a means for students to explore human-relations problems?

11. Whose "advance organizer" approach to teaching is one of the most utilized methods of instruction?

12. Who is credited with the "Invitation to Enquiry" model of teaching that emerged from the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS)?

13. Who developed the jurisprudential inquiry teaching model,a mechanism for creating social studies courses or for illuminating policy questions?

14.Along with Kohlberg, this researcher has proposed levels of moral and cognitive awareness that parallel chronological stages of development for adolescents and post-adolescents. Their disclosures offer some insight to teachers who are trying to understand today's youth. According to this conceptual systems theory, "the closer a teaching strategy is tailored to the learner's conceptual level, the more learning will take place."

15. The nondirective teaching model is based on the work of whom?   This model incorporates the notion that positive human relationships enable people to grow; and, therefore, instruction should be based on concepts of human relations in contrast to concepts of subject matter or thought processes.
