Techniques and modes of instruction
Review of Educational Research
This chapter reviews studies which explore the problems of teaching previously selected substantive content in vocational, technical, and practical arts education. The number of studies which have appeared since the publication of the October 1962 issue of the REVIEW has necessitated considerable selectivity in choosing research to be reviewed here.
One of the major problems has been the definition of research in techniques of modes of instruction. In general, this review emphasizes those studies which utilized an experimental design; quasi-experimental studies are also included. In some instances, provocative theoretical or prescriptive materials are included for their value as guides to understanding the present state of the art. Exemplary studies in each area of investigation are reviewed with the aim of presenting a representative picture of the present status of research.
