Students typically start with a relatively simple idea about what they are learning when they enter a classroom.
But they must leave the class with a more complex and integrated understanding of the content. (2010) say that instruction occurs when teachers take students from where they are when they enter a course (i.e., their prior knowledge, life experiences, values, attitudes and beliefs, and goals) and inﬂuence how the students interpret, use, organize, apply, and retrieve new information.
Anything will work as long as it provides a comprehensive picture of what students need to learn in a simpliﬁed manner and shows relationships among the components.
It sets the stage by chunking large bits of information into manageable pieces.
This model takes into account information processing theory and adapts it for adult students.
For example, this lesson design model emphasizes how to help students attend, organize, encode, store, and retrieve information.
It can also chunk the information into meaningful bits.
Figure 4 (below) is an example of an advance organizer for a PV System.
An advance organizer is a well-organized and simple framework that shows what will be presented in the lesson.
A birdseye view of the topic, it shows how the components that will be learned relate to each other.
