Parkside 8 Step Learning Task Model:

1. Learning Objective – What the learner will be able to do upon mastery of this activity.

2. Anticipatory Set – Puts the student into a receptive frame of mind. Include what the learner already knows; review of other work that may relate to this new activity.

3. Input – Instructor presents new information, using specific materials related to objective and focusing on the necessary basic skills.

4. Modeling – Instructor shows the skill needed so that the student can then do it themselves. The student asks question and tries the skill.
