The antecedent variables which provide opportunities for learners to work with new content and to practice new responses can vary in many ways. In this chapter we summarise experimental research which has analysed the effects of variations in the mode and content of teacher presentations, variations in procedures for prompting new responses and skills, and variations in the type of practice, amount of practice and scheduling of practice opportunities.
