2019 (Q2) Discuss the five (5) formal steps in teaching as advocated by Johann Friedrich Herbert in (1906)

See YEAR 2013 Q5
John Herbert was born in 1776 in Germany. He was acquainted with Pestalozzi from whom he must have definitely learnt a few ideas. He wrote several books in Philosophy.
He advocated five (5) formal steps in teaching which are summarised here:
1. Preparation, which is a process of relating new materials to be learned to relevant past ideas so as to give the pupil a vital interest in the topic;
2. Presentation, i.e. the process of presenting new material by means of concrete objects or actual experience;
3. Association, thorough assimilation of the new idea through comparison with earlier held ideas and consideration of their similarities and differences in order to implant the new idea in the mind;
4. Generation, which is a procedure especially important to the instruction of adolescents and which is designed to develop the mind beyond the level of insight and the concrete; and
5. Application, i.e. using acquired knowledge not in a purely utilitarian way, but in a way that every learned idea becomes a part of the functional mind and for every day purposes. This step will be possible only if the student immediately applies the new idea, making it his own.
