Comparing Instructional Models
Estes, Mintz, and Gunter state, “The constructivist theory of learning is congruent with both concept attainment and concept development” (Estes et al, 2011). How would you distinguish the concept attainment model from the concept development model? How are the two approaches similar and how are they different? In which units of study might these models be best utilized and why? Give specific examples of when each model might be used successfully in classroom instruction.
