Modeling- behavior modification technique

  1. 1. Modeling Reported by: Jomina D. Huerto
  2. 2. Modeling is an instructional strategy in which the teacher demonstrates a new concept or approach to learning and students learn by observing.
  3. 3. • an engaging teaching strategy, able to reach the learning needs of most students. As a technique, teacher modeling involves breaking down a task into specific tasks, and demonstrating each task multiple times in front of the class. This gives students an opportunity to mimic the technique the teacher used.
  4. 4. • relies on the teacher to actively demonstrate, while verbally discussing, the process of using the lesson.
  5. 5. According to social theorist Albert Bandura • “Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do. Fortunately, most human behavior is learned observationally through modeling: from observing others one forms an idea of how new behaviors are performed, and on later occasions this coded information serves as a guide for action.”2
  6. 6. How is Modeling done by the teacher The teacher provides a structure to guide students by: • Describing the skill or strategy • Clearly describing features of the strategy or steps in performing the skill
  7. 7. • Breaking the skill into learnable parts • Describing/modeling using a variety of techniques • Engaging students in learning through showing enthusiasm, keeping a steady pace, asking good questions, and checking for student understanding
  8. 8. Types of Modeling • Disposition modeling In disposition modeling, teachers and students convey personal values or ways of thinking.
  9. 9. • Task and performance modeling Task modeling occurs when the teacher demonstrates a task students will be expected to do on their own.
  10. 10. • Metacognitive modeling Metacognitive modeling demonstrates how to think in lessons that focus on interpreting information and data, analyzing statements, and making conclusions about what has been learned.
  11. 11. • Modeling as a scaffolding technique When using modeling as a scaffolding technique, teachers must consider students’ position in the learning process.
  12. 12. • Student-centered modeling In student-centered modeling, teachers engage students who have mastered specific concepts or learning outcomes in the task of modeling for their peers.
  13. 13. Multiple Learning Modes • The teacher modeling strategy engages students who are : • Visual learners- see the teacher perform the task in front of the class. • Auditory learners- hear the teacher describe each step.
  14. 14. • Tactile learners- write notes about the process the teacher uses • Kinesthetic learners- benefit by seeing the steps to perform the lesson, allowing them to repeat the steps in their own work.
  15. 15. Final Words on Modeling Modeling takes time. However, it will inspire students to do on their own, which in the long run will save time.
