Unformatted text preview: sts refer to as procedural knowledge. The intellectual skills
category is subdivided into five subcategories that can be arranged from simplest
to most complex. These categories are discriminations, concrete concepts, defined
concepts, rules and principles and higher order rules. Table 9.1 (appears at the end
of the chapter) provides definitions and examples for the subcategories of
Attitudes. Attitudes are acquired internal states that guide our choices of
personal action (Gagne+ & Driscoll, 1988). For example, schools might want to
help students develop the attitude that cultural diversity is to be respected and
honored. Attitudes can also involve personal preferences such as students 30 enjoying classical music or great literature. Attitudes usually don’t develop from
the impact of a single lesson, but develop over time and multiple exposures.
Psychomotor skills. Psychomotor skills require that students execute
muscular actions to accomplish a particular goal, with or without the assistance of

metal are examples of psychomotor skills.
Cognitive strategies. Cognitive strategies are internal processes by
which learners select and adapt their ways of attending, remembering, learning,
and thinking (Gagne+ , Briggs & Walter, 1988). They involve the techniques often
discussed by others as learning or problem solving strategies (Weinstein &
Mayer, 1986). Examples include strategies such as mnemonics, concept mapping,
or an approach for solving story problems. Cognitive strategies can be viewed as a
special subtype of intellectual skills because they involve learning how to learn or
think, but because of their special purpose, they can also be treated as a separate
type of learning outcome (Gagne+ , 1985; Gagne+ , Briggs, & Walter, 1988).

external events and conditions to influence stude...
