Sample text

Learning Through Consequences As a youngster interacts with the world, new skills and repertoires can be established in at least two ways: through the outcomes of a learning event or through associations with what is already known. Knowing the processes by which each type of learning occurs allows educators to arrange instruction in ways that facilitate these events. When a learning event occurs and produces a particular outcome, that outcome can make the event more or less likely to be repeated in future settings.

Theory is important because it attempts to answer basic practical questions: . . , which types of outcomes are expected, and how and when should they be measured). (Durlak, 2003:62). Evaluations offer self-correctives to the guiding model and help to reshape the theory in light of empirically based information. The science of primary prevention needs to develop its theoretical base along with its empirical testing of their hypotheses. Durlak notes that the social learning, behavioral, and ecological models now dominate most thinking in primary prevention and thus are good points of departure in conceptualizing any new concern, such as after-school programming and social competency.

The ‘‘clean plate’’ club – where you tell your children to finish every scrap of food on their plates – may reflect this transmitted historic insecurity.
