Show Summary Details


This chapter distinguishes several modalities of the teaching-learning process according to the particular ends that they serve. It does so on the assumption that instructors teach more effectively and students learn more successfully by getting clear about just what type of teaching-learning process is intended. These modalities are then illustrated by applying them to teaching some of the powers identified in previous chapters. The chapter then discusses four forms of instruction available for these teaching-learning processes: didactic, referral, dialogue, and assignment.

Keywords: teaching; learning; instruction; dialogue; assignment
