Instructional Strategies to promote Facilitate Learning
I was particularly interested in the set induction strategy. This strategy uses techniques or words that will facilitate a maximum interest in doing the prescribed learning activity. I can add a motivating statement to the instructional statement about reading i.e. we will have a pre-quiz Jeopardy game with prizes on your readings for next class. This would encourage the students to read more than if I only said, "please read Chapter #X for the next class." Getting students to do their readings is a struggle. Other strategies are mentioned in the article.
