ableofcontents section{Introduction} Behaviourism theory is the study of observable behaviour. In this paperwork we are going to discuss the strategies for how and in which instances would we use them in a teaching-learning environment.\

oindent There are four stages of planning for curriculum. We are going to discuss these stages explaining what educators need to take into consideration when they plan for teaching and learning to take place. section{Question 1} Behaviourism is the theory or doctrine that human or animal psychology can be accurately studied only through the examination and analysis of objectively observable and quantifiable behavioral events, in contrast with subjective mental states (Dictionary.com 1995).\

The mental process of an individual cannot define the behaviour.\

oindent Teachers are obliged to help learners improve their cognition by studying their behaviour, but behaviourism has nothing to do with internal consciousness, cognition, and desires, however, understanding their external behaviors would estimate their internal behaviour. section{Question 2} subsection{Cognitively Guided Instruction} subsubsection{Definition} Cognitively guided instruction deal with the language and listening in teaching as a social construct. The teacher and learners are sharing their problem-solving strategies in an open dialogue (Booyse, C and Du Plessis, EC 2014). subsubsection{Advantages and Disadvantages} egin{center} egin{tabular}{|p{5.6cm}|p{5.6cm}|} hline Advantages & Disadvantages\ hline 1.

subsubsection{Advantages and Disadvantages} egin{center} egin{tabular}{|p{5.6cm}|p{5.6cm}|} hline Advantages & Disadvantages\ hline 1. Learners can work within the simulated situation as if it is real life & 1. There is no direct contact with the real world\ hline 2. Simulation provides the ideal opportunity to practice problem-solving skills & 2. Solving real life problems is costly and extremely difficult\ hline 3. Simulation is true to life and learners will develop their interest in the subject & 3. Some of mathematical problems are not applicable to real life situation\ hline end{tabular} end{center} subsubsection{Practical Example} Explaining the gravitational force using an object by throwing it up of which it will eventually come back. The object will stop on the way up (having velocity equal to zero) and come down pulled by gravitational force.\
