The importance of good lesson planning and the benefits they have for the teacher. When considering the importance and even the significant of effective lesson planning, quite often we immediately considering the benefits that this can have on the student. Effective lesson planning certainly does benefit the student, discussed later in this essay. The benefits of planning for the teacher However, the teacher benefits of planning must also be considered. This means an effective class and raised teaching standard which in-turn improves the overall motivation of the teacher.
I think, to pass any test or an exam is not included in learning but it includes something that we learn from unique experience. According to me, the great learning experiences could motivate the students to become ultimate learners, and inspire them to continue education instead of fighting or just getting angry. The students feel secure and can easily analyse their situation, if they have a good teacher. A good teacher should have a tendency to recognise both physical problems and emotional problems. This experience can give students motivation to study and respect others.
The same can be done with questioning. We are not looking for a shock factor by asking our students higher level questions right at the start of the lesson, but build their confidence, allowing students to warm up on the lower levels of Bloom Taxonomy. The timing is very important with the questioning also. The teacher should be aware of how much time is allotted to each level of difficulty. The reason for that is the teacher should not jump to higher level of questioning too fast and lose struggling readers, but at the same time, staying too long on lower level of questions might result in losing the attention of gifted kids, who are craving for a challenge of more difficult questions.
Nevertheless, this research was considered to be useful and fruitful for the researcher as the researcher is a pre-service teacher. There were many benefits that the teacher gains especially from the experience of various teaching approaches. The teacher has also learnt research techniques and skills that enable the teacher to conduct more future researches and reflection practices that are needed towards self-improvements. This research has provided an insight towards PBL learning theory and its applications which can be used as a stepping stone of others who are interested to conduct similar research in the
According to John Bishop, “School and homework show students the important life lessons, such as how to read and communicate with others, that they will use as an adult.” Students can learn how important planning, staying organized and taking action is just from doing homework. Homework gives the students an opportunity to learn how to work independently. Although I understand that assigning homework is not beneficial at times, I still believe that assigning homework can teach students many skills and even help teachers. Assigning homework to students is constructive, therefore teachers should assign homework because it allows students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, self-esteem, homework also gives students a chance to review the class material, and it also helps teachers determine how well the lessons and materials are being understood by their students. Above all, homework allows the students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, and self-esteem.
Conclusion As we can see from the above, there are key advantages in effective lesson planning for both teacher and student. Although detailed planning is important for it to be effective, there should also be a degree of flexibility, which allows changes in the lesson as its progresses. It is certainly true that in education, and most certainly in the classroom environment itself, rigid planning is not only ineffective but is unwise as there are many variables in the classroom environment which cannot be predicted at the lesson planning stage. The lesson plan can assist with the teaching phase, when it is presented in a clear and concise manner, this strategy is essential when the lesson being taught is unfamiliar to the teacher or the teacher is inexperienced. The lesson plan format should be therefore be readable and accessible.
Types of approach to teaching and learning including authentic instruction, engaged learning and learning by design and learner centred instruction. Theses includes the following: • Learner Autonomy-Authentic instruction gives for and builds on learner autonomy. • Active Learning-It focuses on an active experiential learning. • Holistic - Authentic is holistic it simply relates to the fact that we gain important skills, including reading, spelling, math and technology skills, when we learn them within the context of meaningful activities. Complex Activities -Authentic instruction incorporates real worlds and complex problems Challenging activities - Authentic instruction is challenging most of us had been happy when completing a difficult puzzle.
population explosion, health and hygiene, environmental pollution, wildlife & forests and concern for the conservation of environment. Individuals must have some cognitive knowledge of the environment to develop an intelligent concern for their natural surroundings. Education is a powerful medium for changing our behavior. Thus, this is a crucial time to realize that environmental sensitivity and environmental friendly behavior should be cultivated among masses particularly among adolescents through education. For the awareness of the society about the environment, it is essential to work at grass root level so that the whole society can work to save the environment.
Reading extensively involves giving learners the option of choosing their texts and reading at their own speed. For many it is a more pleasurable way of reading. In using this method, a teacher has the important role of influencing learners to read by introducing them to either simplified or unsimplified text, depending on their reading level. Most importantly, teachers need to ensure that learners understand the beneficial aspects of reading extensively. By helping them set realistic goals and familiarizing them with various types of texts, learners will enhance their word recognition and, as a result, experience more pleasure out of reading without having to constantly stop reading due to lack of
