What is an attitude?
An attitude is a kind of learning which:

Principles for Teaching an Attitude
Given that an attitude is made up of?
Perhaps the first issue to address is how to sequence the instruction.?
Attached are some readings that may help a bit. Then I suggest you work
on Part 2, the Skill Builder, on HyperCard. This is a new and ill-defined
area, where we are gradually discovering better methods of instruction.
Therefore, although the integrated examples may be of some help, they do
not show sequencing well for either levels of complexity or content within
levels. We will focus on this in our class time. See if you can discover
a better way!
Seventh Graded Project
Working in groups of three, create a blueprint for teaching an attitude
of your choice.
a. Pick an attitude which we have not discussed in this course.
b. Select your target population of learners so that the attitude is
of moderate difficulty (3 on a scale of 1-5). Assume that none of your
learners has already acquired the attitude.
c. Your blueprint should have the usual header information:?
the kind of lesson (attitude),
the label for your attitude,?
the target audience,
the richness level for the lesson (1-5)
Then it should have a listing of the cognitive, affective, and behavioral aspects of the attitude.
Then it should have an outline of the general strategies you will use and the sequence for the cognitive, affective, and behavioral aspects in relation to those strategies (no more than one page).
Then the blueprint should have a separate section with prescriptions in the form of a chronological listing of the tactics you would use for each strategy in that sequence (in a left-hand column) and an indication of how you would implement them (in a right-hand column). This might take 2-4 pages.
You do not need to develop instruction for this assignment--the blueprint
is all that is required, and I expect it to be about 3-5 pages.
d. Please put your blueprint in a large envelope or a folder with a
pocket, and include an audio cassette for feedback from your professor.
Note that the examples you have seen do not use this same format. Please
use this new format.?
How did you like having the readings instead of the "What's It All About?"
for this Module?
What would you like changed in the "Skill Builder" for this Module?
What did you like most about the classes for this Module?
What would you like changed in the classes for this Module?
What would you like changed in the full-blown examples of generic skills
Can you think of any way of improving the graded assignment?
