Example: The study of mathematics facilitates the study of physics because the principles used in the solution of verbal problems in physics are the same principles studied in mathematics. Acquired knowledge. The reasoning power gained from the study of geometry and algebra can also be used in the study of social sciences. It should be noted that there are also similar elements in the two learning situations. The theories of Identical Elements. But emphasis is based 25 . Mental Discipline This theory asserts that the skills of training gained in the study of one subject will improve the performance of the same skill in the study of another subject. Thus the value of a subject does not only lie in the usefulness of the content also in the training and skill and acquired used in the study of other subjects. This is a theory of Judd. dates. This theory was formulated by Thorndike. concepts. logic and other subjects. Example: The training gained in memorizing poetry will facilitate the memorizing of other learning materials such as names. 3. It states that the amount of transfer depends upon the presence of identical elements in both learning situations. ideas. The study of medical technology or nursing facilitates study of medicine because of many similar elements in this field. events. 2. Theories of Transfer of Learning: 1. skills. insights. understandings. The theory of generalization It means that experiences in one learning situation can be applied in another learning situation. and other information in history.

Mental ability. the two courses are applied. Method of teaching. object of a verb. The more similarities that exist between two subjects. 4. both have the same uses in the sentences such as subject of a sentence. Example: Take the two courses. the more transfer will take place. This is the same as the Gestalt theory of learning. Hence. one who has finished nursing will have an easier time learning medicine. Similarities between subject matter. The rules and principles of grammar are practically the same in the two languages. The more motivated the learner is and the more effort he exerts. The adjective in English is called pang-uri in Filipino but both described or modify nouns. Nursing on the other hand is taking care of the sick and administering the cure. or objective complement. 3.place on the understanding and recognition of the relationships between the generalizations of the two learning experiences involved. nursing and medicine.

Nine Conditions to Make Learning Possible 1.derived from their own activity that is meaningful and that help satisfy their curiosity by giving some understanding of the world. personal involvement.human being needs to feel that he belongs to the social group and to have some ways of giving affection. Social Needs. lack of attention. 2. The learner must be so aroused that he will not only initiate the learning activity but will persist in it as well. abilities and attitudes. The learner fined his previous ways of reacting unsatisfactorily. The first condition for effective learning is one we are all conscious of. 30 . Any motivation within the individual which makes him perceptive to stimulation is essential to goal attainment.

Guidance of some sort is essential for any kind of complex learning situation where trialerror would prove to be inefficient that lost. Learner gets satisfaction from his behavior. to feel it. 5. while dissatisfying or painful tends to be blotted. Enough time to carry on the desired behavior. 6.Recent studies emphasized that just motivating someone will not produced new behavior unless that person discovers his present behavior are unsatisfactory and need replacing by different better ones. become part of him. as well as to experience it overtly. Kind of guidance of the learner’s efforts when the behavior he is trying to learn is not simply acquired. Unless there is variation in method of approach each time some behavior is practiced. 3. Adequate and appropriate provision of materials for the student to use in his effort to learn. This involves time to react to it. 8. and in that sense is learned. 9. The teacher must encourage pupils to keep setting their sights and show them how they can improve their present standard of accomplishment. 7. 31 .

One of the factors that affect the efficiency of learning is the condition in which learning takes place. school supplies. equipment.physical conditions need for learning is under environmental factor. Environmental Factors. and other instructional materials. This includes the classrooms. 33 .7.

but in addition should make use of the special techniques which research has found to be effective. and case studies. diagnostic and clues which the teacher may notice in observing pupils at work. or feeling of rejections must be recognized and treated before the pupils full potential is release. it is virtually certain that many pupils. the teacher should apply the basic principles of remedial teaching. interviews. There are individual problems in each of the school subjects. The causes of the difficulties are found through a more intensive analysis which includes the use of diagnostic test. Remedial teaching in essence is 34 .DISCOVERING AND OVERCOMING DIFFICULTIES IN LEARNING Although there is no single answer to the problem of educational casualties. Principles of diagnostic and remedial teaching apply to all subjects and grade levels of our school system. mental test achievements test. Remedial teaching begins with a discovery of pupils who are having or apt to have difficulties. who would otherwise have failed or drop out of school. a slight loss of hearing. In each subject. are being help by teachers who have discovered pupil’s difficulties early enough and have provided appropriate remedial teaching. Alert teachers have recognize that anything which interferes with reception of stimuli (sensory defect in vision and hearing) the pupils responses (such as low mental ability) or with motives and energy (as negative attitude and emotional instability) interferes with learning. Learning difficulties maybe discovered by routine physical checkups. It is important in this steps that teachers study the processes which pupils use in solving problems or in going about their work. any such interference whether it be speech defect.

and affect whole area of work. may grow. Since a large percentage of learning difficulties are either caused by or accompanied by emotional disturbances to alleviate difficulties is to build up the child’s self-confidence.just good teaching which takes the learner where he is. The child must be given an early opportunity to use and demonstrate new found skills. Original difficulties. work should be set up to get the child back into class work. 2. Find materials which are interesting and commensurate with the child’s weakness. become persistent. A retarded reader might have great interest in comic books. In this connection. and through well motivated activities led him to increase competence in his area of weakness or difficulties. and those might have media beginning remedial work. 35 . In doing remedial work. however care should be exercised so that child who is undergoing remedial teaching is not thrown into competitive situation to quickly. 4. the following general principles must be observed: 1. Remedial work must be such as to give close attention and guidance to learners in early trial of any new kind of learning. which may be caused by quite simple mistakes. 3. or with new materials. Following diagnosis. as it may undermine his growing confidence. Remove the negative emotional attitudes which affect learning.

then and only then the will 36 . When the learner is capable of gaining insight or understanding into the learning situation. and cooperation. abilities. skills. In other words learning is the process of experiencing. habits. Learning is considered as an acquisition of knowledge. Responses are considered an integral part of the unified self in meeting life’s demands. initiative. Based on the different concepts of the learning process and the laws that govern them. insight. the teacher must understand the basic principles of learning. Learning is meaningful if it is organized in such a way as to emphasized and call for understanding.PSYCHOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING To teach effectively. and attitudes through the interaction of the whole individuals and his total environment. 2. the following general principles of learning are presented for guidance in teaching: 1. doing. reacting and undergoing.

If the individual has to learn. Learning is best when the learner knows and understands his motive in learning. Learning is facilitated by motives or drives. 6. Learning does not occur unless the learner is ready to act or to learn. Lack of practice or exercise cause memory of leaned materials weaken. he learns more effectively and with greater satisfaction than when unprepared. 5. Learning is facilitated by the law of effect. he must have some goal to be accomplished. When a person is ready to learn. 4. synthesizing process that integrates experiences into larger meaningful units.learning take place. Learning is facilitated by the law of readiness or mind get. whereas a feeling of annoyance tends to destroy it. When the learner finds the correct answer to a question. The law of effect pertains to the influence of satisfying or unsatisfying feeling tones that accompany a response and either strengthen or weaken that response. and in general. Mental set is conductive to effective learning. 37 . When a person feels ready to act and is prevented from doing so. A feeling of satisfaction fixes a response. interest. We learn and retain by exercise and forget though disuse. he feels pleased about his achievement and the connection is consequently strengthened. Learning is facilitated by the law of exercise. the greater the loss. Practice and exercise are so common that they are universally accepted as an active means of learning. 3. Needs. the longer the period of disuse. he feels annoyed. Understanding is an organizing. and goals are fundamental on the learning process.

Learning difficulty is due to many factors within the learner himself. Learning is most effective in an atmosphere of security and belonging. 9. Learning is conditioned by the attitude of the learner. and smell will facilitate the learning and understanding of the learning situation. and the attitude and skill of the teacher in setting the stage for learning.7. which includes teaching skill itself. Learning is effective when it is made functional and aided by understanding derived from experience. taste. The experience of the pupil when utilized by the teacher will add to the understanding of the learning situation. When the learner perceives the relationship of facts presented. The most common factors which affect the learning process are the intellectual. Learning is facilitated when the teacher provides the learner with the proper stimuli and guides. 12. All of these factors may be found in the individual himself. it must be related in some way to his previous knowledge. Learning is facilitated by the law of belongingness. and uses the principle of conditioning or associating those learning functions that need to be made automatic for most effective learning. They serve as time-energy-saving habits. physical. emotional. 8. Automatic responses are of prime importance in the formation of new habits or skills for they increase power and lessen fatigue. 10. 11. Experiences and other material devices are 38 . and social factors. the environmental conditions conducive to learning. The combination of seeing and hearing with touch. Learning is effective when more senses are utilized by the learner. The use of different senses will also add effectiveness in causing learning to be meaningful and functional. It must belong to the context of learning to learner has already achieved. the speed of learning is greatly increased. In order that learning in the classroom will be more meaningful to the learner.

has knowledge of his status and progress when he achieves insight and understanding. 14. Learning products are socially useful pattern of action. 16. The learning process and proceeds most effectively when the experiences. The learning process in operation is a functioning unity of several procedures which may be separated arbitrarily for discussion. The learning process proceeds most effectively under the type of instructional guidance which stimulates without dominating or coercing which provides for success rather than too many failures. Individual need practice in setting realistic goals for themselves. 18. appreciations. 17. 13. and abilities. Realistic goals lead to ore satisfactory improvement than unrealistic goal-setting. values. The learning process and achievement are materially affected by the level of aspiration set by the learner. 15. Materials and desired results are carefully adjusted to the maturity and background of experience of the learner. This is based on the principle of integration. 39 . which are useful and meaningful to the learner. skills. The learning process proceeds best when the learner can see results.often used in teaching to give meaning and understanding to the learner. attitudes. The maturity and intelligence of the learner will determine the need for supplemental experience and other instructional devices. meanings. The learning products accepted by the learners are those which satisfy a need.

Conclusion of the Learning Process 40 . mannerism. Here the teacher can also involve himself in many informal experiences as he shares activities with his school mates and enjoy satisfactory relationship with teachers and classmates. 20. or group standards. There is no substitute for respective practice in the over learning of skill or in memorization of unrelated facts.19. A child tends to imitate speech patterns. Much of this learning emanates from imitation of others. The learning situation which is considered more formal is that of the school. Spaced or distributed results are more advantageous in fixing material that is to be long retained. social behavior. During informal learning as individuals habit patterns result directly from response in day by day situations. Learning situation may be either formal or informal. Learning as commonly conceived means not only change but improvement.

The combination of an aviation background and future goals may enable that student to realize the need and value of learning the procedures. an instructor may give two aviation maintenance students the assignment of learning certain inspection procedures. and may result in only minimum preparation. feeling. In spite of numerous theories and contrasting views. The responses differ because each student ads in accordance with what he or she sees in the situation. Thus. it is necessary to analyze what happens to the individual. One student may learn quickly and be able to competently present the assigned material. and doing may change as a result of a learning experience. psychologists generally agree on many common characteristics of learning. Characteristics of Learning Learning is Purposeful Each student sees a learning situation from a different viewpoint. an individual's way of perceiving. thinking. Learning occurs continuously throughout a person's lifetime. Learning also may involve a change in attitude or behavior. A second student's goal may only be to comply with the instructor's assignment. To define learning. and adults can learn to solve complex problems. For example. 41 . teenagers may learn to improve study habits. This chapter addresses that branch of psychology directly concerned with how people learn. This can be physical and overt. learning can be defined as a change in behavior as a result of experience. For example.To learn is to acquire knowledge or skill. Each student is a unique individual whose past experiences affect readiness to learn and understanding of the requirements involved. This handbook is designed as a basic guide to educational psychology. or it may involve complex intellectual or attitudinal changes which affect behavior in more subtle ways. Children learn to identify objects at an early age. Definition of Learning The ability to learn is one of the most outstanding human characteristics.

For example. The instructor cannot assume that students remember something just because they were in the classroom. perhaps outwardly. conceptual elements. these ideas change as a result of experience. according to the manner in which the situation affects their individual needs. problem solving. Neither can the instructor assume that the students can apply what they know because they can quote the correct answer verbatim. they need to react and respond. motor. along with descriptive terms like surface or deep learning. A person's knowledge is a result of experience. the class also engages in verbal learning and sensory perception at the same time. a class learning to apply the scientific method of problem solving may learn the method by trying to solve real problems. or intellectually. learning and knowledge cannot exist apart from a person. such as verbal. perceptual elements. and emotional. Therefore. and no two people have had identical experiences. emotionally. therefore. and attitudinal changes. they are somewhat artificial. perhaps only inwardly. 42 . Previous experience conditions a person to respond to some things and to ignore others. or airplane when the instructor presented the material. conceptual. Other classifications refer to intellectual skills. and problem solving elements all taking place at once. But if learning is a process of changing behavior. cognitive strategies. shop. The student can learn only from personal experiences. perceptual. But in doing so. Even when observing the same event. Learning is an Active Process Students do not soak up knowledge like a sponge absorbs water. two people react differently. they learn different things from it. the instructor cannot do it for the student. However useful these divisions may be. Each student approaches the task with preconceived ideas and feelings.Learning is a Result of Experience Since learning is an individual process. emotional elements. and for many students. Learning is Multifaceted Psychologists sometimes classify learning by types. the learning process may include verbal elements. clearly that process must be an active one. This aspect of learning will become more evident later in this handbook when lesson planning is discussed. For students to learn.

today's culturally diverse society. For example. personality.Learning Styles Although characteristics of learning and learning styles are related. In addition. including international students. social interaction tendencies and the instructional methods used are all significant factors which apply to how individual students learn. Learning style is a concept that can play an important role in improving instruction and student success. there are distinctions between the two. must be considered. Self – Activity. a student's information processing technique. the Basis of All Learning 43 . It is concerned with student preferences and orientation at several levels.

precision and permanence of learning will be enhanced in proportion to the amount of activity aroused in the process. in the sense of ability to educate should be an objective of all teaching. must be given experience in using the means thought make self education possible. Learning at its best is the process of discovering by one’s self. Pupils will learn to think reflectively by going through experiences of reasoning. It is an active process. Learning proceeds rapidly in direct proportion to active participation. mental. the pupil learns the significance of the steps of the inductions and deductive reasoning process. However.The preceding study of learning activities emphasized the importance of self – activity on the part of the learner. Self – activity. Self – activity must made a definite objective and pupil under proper guidance. social and emotional experience. Through experiences and reflective thinking. There is a great need for activity in effective learning. not only in the work at hand. for the speed and the precision of learning becomes most effective only in direct proportion to the amount of activity that is aroused during the process. Importance of Self – activity in Acquiring Specific Motor Activities 44 . The teacher plays an important part in the educative process by finishing the conditions that stimulate the desired physical. but interest in improvement and the acceptance of the work as significant to the pupil’s needs. Methods of Self – Activity It emphasizes the importance of needs and interest. Importance of Self – activity in Thinking The principle of self – activities is of particular importance in teaching pupils to reason. Speed. too much emphasis cannot be placed on the importance of activity in the learning process on the fact that learning is promoted by action alone.

The more intelligent the learner. Learning of any sort is dependent to some extent on the magnitude of the unit to the comprehend. Studies made by Cronbach have shown that the whole method is superior to the part method only with respect to certain subjects. The Literature suggest as follows: a. it is necessary that the pupil experience each of the sets of muscular movements essential to the development of the ability. Cognitive Learning and Thinking 45 .In acquiring specific motor abilities. More meaningful the material. the more efficient the whole method. the more efficient the whole method. Verbal directions. demonstrations or various kinds of illustrations may help in guiding the trial – and error of the learning process. b. c. Such units ought’s to call for an organized pattern of response. The Importance of the Whole .Method in Learning Most learning situations consist of an organized pattern of objects or events. by actual doing repetition are essential to the mastery of the ability.

and transfer information to new situations. So constructed. 46 . Learning by doing is good advice. If students are unwilling to read or to play terms they will not learn how to read or to play tennis. The emphasize behavioral modification by means of reinforcement. Principles of Learning There have been three major school of learning theories in the last 100 years: 1. Field and Gestalt theories consider how the individual perceives the learning environment or situation. Cognitive theories consider how learners think.Cognitive Learning and Thinking It is important for teachers to understand the way student and the components of critical and creative thinking. But teachers should also understand that student learn by indirect means by observing others and through encouragements to try again or to go to the next task or skill level 2. critical thinking and creativity connote specific aspects of learning. The following list of principles of learning is derived from cotemporary cognitive psychology and has implications for teachers today. 1. 2. reasons. Behavioral theories learning in terms of changing what we do. Learning is a reflective process whereby the learner either develops new insights and understanding or changes or restructures his or her mental process. One learns to do what one does. learning combines both inductive thought and deductive thought where as learning connotes a general process. They emphasize observational learning and modeling 3.

The teacher must consider the students age in presenting certain content and in expecting certain cognitive processes. Teachers need to help students to learn how to recognize their thoughts. The principle of readiness is related to the learner’s stage of development and their previous learning. 9. 7. 10. Positive feedback. 6. From a review of the Literature. Meta cognition. 5. An important part of teaching is to know one’s needs additional instruction and who is ready to learn new task. Charles Letteri has compiled a list of seven comprehension or thinking skills that students can develop to enhance the way they process and 47 .teachers must assist students to become task.directed and focus. Transfer of learning to new situations can be horizontal ( across subject matter ) or vertical ( increased complexity of the same subject ) 8. Sometimes forget that these personal factors affect learning and that teacher’s attitudes influence the student perceptions themselves. purposive and efficient in their use of time for learning and studying. how to assess their own thinking and to study. Teachers should provide opportunities for meaningful and appropriate practice- practice task to engage students more fully and to take advantage of different ways of learning the same thing. 4. realistic praise and encouragement are motivating in the teaching learning process.3. Teachers must also consider situational factors. Is relative to the student needs and abilities. The student self.concepts and beliefs about their abilities are extremely important. Teachers need to help students learn how to organize their thoughts how to assess their own thinking and how to study.oriented.is an advanced cognitive process whereby students acquire specific learning strategies and also sense when they are not learning. Learning should be good.

1.(reflective impulsivity) the ability to select a correct item from among several alternatives and to compare information and make proper choice. Comparative analysis .integrates information. Relating two or more items such as nouns and verbs. 2. the ability to deal with ambiguous or unclear information without getting frustrated. Analysis – ( sometimes called Field dependence – independence ) The ability to breakdown complex information into component parts for the purpose of identification and categorization. Analyzing or synthesizing new information with all the information. Cognitive frameworks propose Weinstein and Mayor consist of eight comprehension or thinking strategies. Basic rehearsal strategies. 4. Basic elaboration strategies. Complex cognitive – (complexity – simplicity) the ability to integrate complex information into existing cognitive structure. 5. Making appropriate choices or selection. Narrowing – (breadth of categorization) the ability to identify and place new information into categories through its attributes physical characteristics. Focusing – (scanning) the ability to select relevant or important information without being distracted or confused by the irrelevant or secondary information. Tolerance – (Tolerant – intolerant) the ability to monitor and modify thinking. Sharpening – (sharpening – leveling) the ability to maintain distinction between cognitive structures and to avoid confusion or overlap. 4. Complex elaboration strategies. Complex rehearsal strategies. This are the skills that the teacher should understand and help student acquire. The ability to remember names or words and the order of things. 3. 48 . 2. principles or function. 7. 6. 1. 3.

7. The strategy of teaching must suit the learning situation. 8. 6. If at first the learner fails to attain his goal. implications. Checking progress. 7. right or wrong. Basic organizational strategies. The learner must concentrate on the learning task.5. 2. 4. 10. Comprehension. grouping or ordering new information. 3. Putting information in hierarchal arrangement such as outlining notes or framework. The learner must integrate the related parts of the learning task into a whole. 6. The learner must be ready to learn psychologically and physiologically. The learner must be motivated and guided either intrinsically and extrinsically. Categorizing. The learner must often use the law of exercise to enable him to remember and retain what he has learned. Affirtive strategies. Being relaxed yet alert and attentive during a test situation and when studying. The learner must see his goal clearly. Complex organizational strategies. monitoring. The learner must learn by doing. 9. 5. The learner must be able to see the significance meaning. recognizing when one is on the right track or confused. 8. and application of the learning task.

Good-Old Team. 1. and their method of student grouping. as well as occupational outlook. their choice of instructional activities and materials. 2. pattern of behavior. somewhat crusty teacher who purposely gets into arguments with the students over the subject matter through artful questioning. The image is one of a group of players to the coach working as a team. 5. and attitude toward self and others. mode of performance. This teacher asserts his or her own authority and provides rewards or punishments to see that the work is done. Boss-Employee. 3. Teachers who adapt this style use a great deal of discussion and play a moderator role that enables students to work out answers to problems to problems by themselves. DESCRIPTION OF TEACHING STYLES Thelen (1954) Herbert Thelen attempts to compare teaching styles with characteristics of societal positions or with what appear to be roles associated with other occupation. 50 . Apprenticeship. Donald Medley refers to teachers styles as a dimension of classroom climate. Socratic. This person serves as a role model towards learning. Town-meeting. The image is a wise. Penelope Peterson defines teacher’s style in terms of how teachers utilized space in the classroom.Teaching style is viewed as a broad dimension or personality type that encompasses teacher stance.

51 . Explanatory. The teacher is in command of the subject matter and explains particular aspects of the lesson. Secular. except perhaps the principal. strong voice. Boomer. Rubin (1985) Louis Robin more recently defines six kinds of teaching styles related to the act of teaching. 1. This teacher is free enough to joke and laugh with the students. 7. this teacher commands both respect and attention. 6. Compulsive type. they were originally based on the observant ions of effective teachers of inner-city students. calm but definite. 8. 4. earthy and maybe an athlete. This teacher is fussy. Sincere. teaches things over and over and is concerned with functional order structures. Maverick. he is physically expressive in conducting the class. 3. 1. Everybody loves his teacher. She raises difficult questions and present ideas that disturb. This person is relaxed and informal with children. The teacher is interested in knowledge and in the substance of ideas.Riesman (1967) Frank Reissman’s eight teaching styles describe personality types. there is no nonsense in the classroom. Entertainer. she will have lunch with them. Academic. 2. This teacher shouts out in loud. This teacher is informal. Coach. 5. Quite One. or play ball with them.

2. 3. 52 . 4. Interactive. 5. Directs all the activities of the program. and presenting corrective advice. the teacher facilitates the development of student’s ideas. The students are expected to listen and follow the instructions of the teacher. Research on Teacher Styles Lipid and White laid the groundwork for a more formal classification of what a teacher does in the classroom. Programmatic. The teacher provides feedback to the students. They developed an instrument for describing the “social atmosphere” of children’s clubs and for quantifying the effects of group and individual behavior. Informative. Authoritarian teacher. Through dialogue and questioning.analyzing the work. Considered to be an unorganized or ineffective teacher. Encourage group participation and is willing to let students share in decisionmaking process. Aspiratory. Democratic teacher. The teacher is stimulating and exhibits emotional involvement in teaching.faire teacher. diagnosing for errors. The teacher presents information through verbal statements. This behavior is typical of what is now called the indirect teacher. Laissez. Corrective. The teacher guides the student’s activities and facilitates self instruction and independent learning. 6. This style share some characteristics with is now called the direct teacher.

4) Low Achiever These children have difficulty even when willing to work. they often avoid starting or they just give up easily. 3) Underachiever These do the minimum work just “get by” they do not value school work. 2) Perfectionist These Children are unduly anxious about making mistakes.Student Problem Types Based on Teacher Description 1) Failure syndrome These Children are convinced they cannot do the work. they have self impose standards which are unrealistically high. 5) Hostile aggressive 53 .

and do not respond well to others. They seem unable to sustain attention and concentration and are highly distractible. 8) Hyperactive These children show excessive and almost constant movement. 10) Immature These children have poorly developed emotional stability. even when sitting. 11) Rejected by peers These children seek interaction but are rejected. They want to have their way and not to be told what to do. 6) Passive Aggressive These children express opposition and resistance to the teacher though indirectly. 9) Distractible These children have short attention span. social skills. or responsibility. ignored or excluded. abilities. intense behavior. 12) Withdrawn These children avoid personal interaction. They are not easily controlled. Are unobtrusive.These children express hostility trough direct. 54 . self-care. 7) Defiant These children resist authority and carry on power struggle with the teacher. self control.
