Topic: Behaviorist and Cognitive Views of Learning and Theory into Practice
Imagine that you work in a school. A number of people in your department are having a debate as to whether students should be expected to memorize material or not. Memorization has been an accepted practice in education for many years. But some people think students can learn information through methods other than memorizing.
Explain how you would contribute to this debate.
Describe an opening activity for a lesson you might teach and explain how the principles of maintaining on-task behavior apply to your opening activity.
