Phenomena of Action Constructing Method



One of the central questions of the theory of training is the problem of construction of common mode of actions and its allocation. It can be hypothesized that a common mode of actions is both a mean to detect the hidden properties of an object, but also constructing means of working with one's own vision of that object. This article presents an experimental situation that allows showing the phenomenon of mode of actions as constructing means of working with one's own vision. The study was conducted on 3rd and 6th graders in a general education school. The following conclusions were made. These kinds of methods are sufficient to distinguish two types of attitudes (orientations): orientation on construction of mode of action and orientation to solve specific practical tasks. The deliberate amplification and display of one's own sense of actions with all sorts of means, including sign-oriented, may indicate the construction of mode of action.
