D E F I N I T I O N : a prescriptive approach to instruction; deliver methodology that will produce the best results based on the content.

F U N C T I O N : The MRK model suggests that learning occurs when meaningful relationships are formed between new information and pre-existing knowledge. Instructional strategies are effective when learners make new connections therefore, initial presentation of content as well as generative strategies are imperative to quality instruction. Attention to this stage of instructional design permits the designer to reliably predict learning.

STEP BY STEP 1. Use the expanded content-performance matrix to decide the content and performance type for each instructional objective. Classify each objective. 2. Assign an instructional strategy for each objective, based on its classification. Determine and write a description of prescriptive strategies for: a. Initial presentation of content b. Generative strategy (learner practice with content)

GENERATIVE STRATEGIES 4 strategies identified by Jonassen, (1988) outlined by MRK

Recall Facts, numbers, lists o Repetition o Rehearsal o Review o mnemonics

Integration Simplify the information o Paraphrase o Generate questions o Generate examples

Organization Make connections between new ideas and prior knowledge o Analyzing key ideas o Outline o Categorize o Create tables
