Abstract

The Direct-instruction Model favors the use of teacher explanations and modeling combined with student practice and feedback to teach thinking skills. Using this paradigm, this study incorporates e-learning during an 18-week experimental instruction period that includes 48 preservice teachers. The primary findings are as follows: (a) all participants favored the instructional design in this study; (b) the experimental instruction effectively improved the preservice teachers' critical-thinking ability as well as their professional knowledge and personal teaching efficacy concerning critical-thinking instruction; (c) the mechanisms contributing to the effectiveness of experimental instruction mainly included discussing and sharing, observational learning, self-reflection, guided practice, and a learning community.
