Wright outlines a fair discussion about critical thinking intending to guide the teacher to help children to ‘think through situations where the answer is in doubt’ (2002, p.9). Throughout this chapter Wright pioneers critical thinking has a ‘practical value’ for social education, that it could help children grasp subject content in a profound and meaningful way. Examples of how to teach critical thinking are included throughout this chapter however, the lessons overlook other views of critical thinking as a process of developing skills and sub-skills. Wright (2011) generalises that critical thinking involves questioning from the higher end of the cognitive domain according to Blooms Taxonomy; ‘analyses, synthesis and evaluation’ (2002, p51). Meanwhile, Facione (2011, p. 6), who also supports critical thinking for social education, suggests skills such as: interpretation, analysis, evaluation, inference, explanation and self-regulation are developed as a process when teaching critical thinking.
He stressed that asking daily questions was imperative. The teacher should check student understanding informally by asking open ended questions about their performance at the end of the class. Each student should respond to the question on a piece of paper. Rubrics are very important in the self-assessment process. Rubrics are evaluation guides that provide feedback on several different learning objectives, recognizing where a student falls into the spectrum of proficiency for each objective.
The pre-schoolers must know their values, like family values and moral values. Another essential social task is pre-schoolers have to remember the names of their classmates, family members and friends. The educator can refresh the memory of the students by asking the names of the students in the class randomly, to make sure that they remember the names.Inaddition the pre-schoolers should get to know each other. They need to interact by giving and also accepting compliments
The data gained from the test also helps the teachers realize what subject may be a problem area for his or her students. This is a benefit that would significantly help the students. Without it students may be struggling with a topic and the teachers are not even aware. By looking at the scores and talking with the previous teachers they can determine what might be the best way to teach the students. This leads to the next benefit, teachers can begin a new year knowing how much each student already knows.
The IEP records are only used as a starting point for teaching the student and it is up to the teacher to know the students strengths and weakness in learning. The student and teacher can discover together how best to help each student in the classroom, for each student has unique learning qualities. The teacher is aware of a problem and the next step is taking action to be better prepared for parent report card conferences. Whether that involves talking to a special education specialist for additional guidance, possibly moving the
Therefore, before the teacher gives an assessment to the students he or she must cover a lesion and prepare to plan what question he is going to give to the students. Also must give the exam tips to students and sometimes for students to plan out how there are going to study for their examination. A very good example of assessment planning is the blueprint; teacher must able to make a blueprint before writing a test following the procedure and how will meet the learning out for each individual student. So proper planning helps teacher to collect their data information very easier and know how many assessments is going to give to the student in a
Good teachers cultivate critical thinking at every stage of learning, including initial learning. The work of William Glasser, M.D., provides insight into nurturing the critical thinking process through the use of specific types of questions. Glasser’s quality schools approach uses the reality therapy questioning process to encourage students to process information analytically. By preparing a questioning strategy, teachers can present information in a manner that is conducive to promoting intellectually-engaged thinking.

H7: There is significant difference in terms of motivation level of students between experimental group and control group in the post-test. RQ8: is there any significant difference in terms of performance level of students between experimental group and control group in the post-test? H8: There is significant difference in terms of performance level of students between experimental group and control group in the post-test. Significant of the study Teachers all over the world are persistently improving their pedagogical approaches in order to keep the students motivated and engaged in the classrooms. This study will inform teachers on how they can incorporate gamified learning in teaching and learning activities thus, helping the students glued to the instruction.
-Curriculum: the school provides a rigorous and diverse curriculum with all fundamental aspects of learning English (listening, reading, writing and speaking) for a wide range of target students/ groups. -School ethos: openness, sharing and commitment to improve students’ learning progress and increase parental confidence. -Professional leadership: managers try to lead subordinates in a professional manner and create a friendly-working environment without conflicts or prejudices for all. -Monitoring progress: all of the written work, final course exam results of students’ performance is stored and reported to parents so that parents can keep up with the learning advancement of their children better. -Customer service: Well-trained student-care officers.
Teachers can also use assessments to find strengths and weaknesses of the students which will enable variations and adaptations to be made as necessary to improve student learning. A more conventional use of assessments is to provide grades for the student, their parents, and the teacher. They can use the data ascertained by the assessments to track the students’ progress throughout the class. There are two different types of assessments teachers can use to measure a student’s progress they are formative and summative. Formative assessments are used throughout the learning process to allow teachers to know if the students are understanding the lesson and make adaptations it as necessary.
