Applying theories to learning and instruction becomes problematic when theories contradict one another. For example, while cognitive dissonance theory asserts that beliefs and behaviors can influence attitudes, social attribution theory holds that people make causal inferences to explain others behaviors, actions, and mental states. In this assignment, you will contrast cognitive dissonance theory and social attribution theory, and you will consider how cognitive dissonance theory and attribution theory could be applied to improve learning and instruction. You will also consider the potential for personal worldview to countermand cognitive dissonance.
1. the theoretical perspective and current research on cognitive dissonance theory. Provide examples that support the research claims.
2. the theoretical perspective and current research on social attribution theory. Provide examples that support the research claims.
3. how cognitive dissonance theory and attribution theory could be applied to improve learning and instruction. (Benchmarks C3.4: Apply the theories of cognitive psychology to learning and instruction.)
4. personal worldview as a means to countermand cognitive dissonance. How might a distinctly Christian worldview function in this role?
