This activity is designed to move your thinking away from simply acquiring, analyzing and synthesizing new information about theories and move you toward developing an understanding of how and when theories might be applied in support of teaching and learning.
Regardless of the topic/subject or target learners/grade level, begin by thinking about a specific lesson, skill set, or body of knowledge with which you or other learners may have struggled or do struggle. Then, think about how the lesson is typically taught and how students are expected to learn. Finally, consider the fundamental tenets and assumptions of this module’s theoretical perspectives: cognitive information processing, motivation and self-regulated learning, and meaningful learning and schema theory. Did the lesson as you have taught (or remember) it already reflect any or all of these theories? If so, how? How might you (or another educator) modify the teaching and learning of your selected lesson/topic to include practices that reflect these perspectives? Which students would be most likely to benefit from your modifications (and why?)? Are there specific parts of the lesson that might be most or least suitable for modification (and why?)? What do you believe would be both the strength(s) and weakness(es) of incorporating practices from these three theories into your lesson? Keep in mind that the goal is not to replace the existing teaching methods with only teaching grounded in these theories; rather, we should consider how existing teaching might be modified.
Create a discussion entry/post in which you briefly describe the selected lesson/topic and target learners and then describe in suitable detail how principles of cognitive information processing, motivation and self-regulated learning, and meaningful learning and schema theory are/were or could be appropriately applied to revising the lesson. Your description should include your rationale for the modifications and a brief analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, and challenges associated with the changes to the lesson. Although there is no “hard and fast” answer to the question of “how long should my discussion post be?,” one complete paragraph is definitely insufficient and more than four paragraphs is probably indicative of too much detail.
This assignment only requires three paragraphs because talk about cognitive information processing, motivation and self-regulated learning, and meaningful learning and schema theory when reading the response.
