Human Development, Learning Theories and Conditions of Learning
Use the three theories of learning (Behavioral, Cognitive, and Humanistic) to explain how an instructor could create a plan for three groups of students learning trigonometry in 11th grade math.
For each theory:
A) Explain the concept of the learning theory.
B) What is the instructor's role in the learning process?
C) What is the student's role in the learning process?
D) Provide an example using one of the theories to explain how it could be taught in the classroom.
