PREFACE It is now generally realized that the success of a teaching machine depends greatly upon the material used in it and that the development of principles and techniques for programming this material is an important area for investigation. At the present time work in the field. (Teaching Machines and programmed Learning by A. A. Lumsdaine and R. Glaser, 19600 National Education Association) has suggested certain rudimentary techniques? The eventual goal, however, is the development of a
more » ... hnology of programming based upon the science of learning and upon the results of detailed experimental tryout. The present report describes an approach toward a systematic procedure for the construction of programmed learning sequences for verbal materials. Experimental study with a program prepared according to the system described in this report is presented in a separate project publication (An Investigation of "Teaching Machine" Variables Using Learning Programs in Symbolic Logic, James L. Evans, In Press). 1 A comprehensive review of the present notions underlying programming is also presented in a separate project report.
