Teaching Specific Types of Knowledge


Vocabulary terms and phrases

Vocabulary Terms and Phrases

  • Students must encounter words in context more than once to learn them (at least 6).

  • Instruction of new words enhances learning words in context.

  • The best way to learn a new word is to associate it with an image.


Vocabulary terms and phrases continued

Vocabulary Terms and Phrases (continued)

  • Direct vocabulary instruction works.

  • Direct instruction on words that are critical to new content produces the most powerful learning. ***Don’t give the students too many words…only the words that are essential.***


Details

Details

  • Students should have systematic, multiple exposures to details.

  • Different types of instruction produce different effects on student learning (the type of instruction should match what you want the student to learn).


Organizing ideas

Organizing Ideas

  • Students have misconceptions about organizing ideas (Example: All Arabs are like Osama bin Laden.) Discussion and argument help to get rid of misconceptions.

  • Students should be provided opportunities to apply organizing ideas (application).


Skills

Skills

  • The discovery approach is difficult to use in teaching skills.

  • Teachers should organize examples into categories that represent different approaches to the skill.

  • Skills are most useful when they are learned to become automatic.


Processes

Processes

  • Students should learn processes in context, not in isolation. (Example: Prewriting should be taught in the context of the writing process.)

  • Teachers should emphasize metacognitive thinking in processes.
