31st Annual Convention for the Association for Behavior Analysis International (2005)

Abstract
The education community is fraught with arguments regarding the use of certain teaching methods over others. Such competitive arguments also occur even among proponents of methods with empirical evidence of success. Such a controversy culminated during a session of the 2004 Boston ABA Convention when three presenters presented their separate approaches including peer tutoring and Direct Instruction. I view that such controversies are frequently counterproductive and therefore will present a way to use all research validated methods more harmoniously and productively. Based on the literature and professional views, I will suggest those methods be used in accordance with the continuum of students' learning phases (i.e., mastery-fluency-maintenance-generalization) that educators generally agree upon. In this manner, I will propose proper uses of several instructional methods. Following this presentation, attendants will be asked to express their views.
