  • Procedural knowledge is knowing how to do something; it involves making discriminations, understanding concepts, and applying rules that govern relationships and often includes motor skills and cognitive strategies
  • Declarative knowledge is knowing that something is the case

  • The ability to solve problems builds on declarative knowledge and procedural knowledge.
  • eas, such as math versus writing
  • problem solving involves a sequence of steps, beginning with establishing a representation of the problem, then selecting a strategy that seems appropriate for resolving the problem, followed by evaluating the results of employing that strategy
  • Declarative knowledge involves information one can state verbally. Therefore, tasks will require students to state, explain, discuss, or declare in some other way what they know
  • He described declarative knowledge as a network of propositions, whereas procedural knowledge represented productions. While declarative knowledge involves knowing that something is the case, procedural knowledge involves knowing how to do something
  • To assess problem solving, students are presented a problem to solve or a situation from which they must infer the problem that needs to be solved. Typically, any number of strategies might be used to successfully solve the problem. When scoring student performance where the focus of the assessment is on problem solving, proficiency with particular strategies or other types of procedural (or declarative) knowledge generally is not scored. What is scored are qualities such as the establishment of a clear and appropriate problem representation and sense of goal, the selection of a strategy that is reasonable given the goal to be achieved, and the adequacy with which outcomes from using the selected strategy are evaluated.

    Thinking of gender as an achievement
    We usually think of gender as a set of traits (as in femininity and masculinity), a role (as in scripts for behavior), or a social variable (as in salary differences). The doing of gender discuss in this article is different than all of these. Doing gender shifts our attention away from the inner person and to the interaction, where we can see gender as an achievement. I will use this in my introductory module preceding a observation activity of watching a conversation between men and women in a social setting. The final culminating activity will be an blog reflection.
