    I have been reading about say, see, do. That approach makes perfect sense for a math class, but how could it be implemented in a course like Science or History on the secondary level, when most of the class is just memorization of terms and concepts, not working problems with guided practice.

    You think science is just memorization of terms and concepts, and not working problems?! I'm very sad to see that written on a teaching forum! :(

    Illustrated Performance Sequences lend themselves to tasks which involve steps like computation in math, science, shop etc.

    Performance Outlines and Conceptual Maps are more suited for areas which involve research, concept development, or free expression. Whereas Performance Sequence relies on graphics, Performance Outlines are written "how to" in a logical sequence to complete a task or develop a concept. Conceptual Maps show someone how to 1) organize an idea 2) conduct problem solving 3) perform a series of investigations.

    See-say-do (don't forget "teach") along with Performance Models are used often during initial instruction to clarify details that may be lost by relying on "hear".
