METHOD OF RESEARCH This study is carried out with a qualitative research design. These kinds of researches are used to gain in-depth knowledge in a study. More specifically the research employed an ethnographic research design in collecting data. Creswell (2000) describe ethnographic designs are qualitative research procedures for describing, analysing, an interpreting a culture-sharing groups shared patterns of behaviour, beliefs, and language that develop over time. Teacher’s views were obtained through face to face interviews with semi-structured questions.
Numerous hypotheses have been created during the time to help with comprehension identity. The purpose for the presence of a few theories is so that a scholar can think and study an idea from a particular perspective. A theory is an apparatus that is utilized by researchers to seek after learning. A considerable lot of the personality theories get from the identity of the scholar. This paper will tackle the contributions of Carl Roger and B.F. Skinner to the theories of personality.
My value system is shaped by my observations and personal experiences. I try my best to be open-minded therefore my value system is rather fluid. Education has taught me awareness; It has taught me how to acknowledge other people’s value systems, how to question my own values, and put my beliefs into words. Literature is used as a medium to teach. Books reflect history, popular culture, societal standards, moral beliefs, and much more.
The evaluation was divided into two broad categories Scholastic that looked at the areas which were subject specific and Co-Scholastic that included activities that were co-curricular like life skills, attitudes and values. The Scholastic evaluations was divided into Summative assessment to help analyse how much the students have learned after teaching through various medium like multiple choice questions, long and short answers , match the following , fill in the blanks and understanding diagrams in science . and Formative assessment to evaluate the students everyday learning situations during teaching to help identify gaps to help provide feedback to teachers to take remedial action which was done through various tools like observation, document analysis ,peer reviews ,self-assessment ,tests and the various techniques used were like projects ,assignments , activities , making of posters ,charts ,collages ,group discussions and seminars whereas the life skills looked at enhancing the thinking, social and emotional skills . The summative assessment are to assess skills like teamwork ,leadership skills , memory and understanding along with
Lessons are designed according to students learning difficulties. Students’ prior knowledge is assessed through the pre-tests and interviews as assessment tools to inform the content of the lessons. According to Hodge (2010), the key component of an effective lesson is when the teacher understands and knows about the topic. As Variation Theory using learning study is collaborative in its nature, teachers gain more knowledge on the topic as they discuss and meet to share their past experiences about teaching the topic before proceeding to the
Why? Bacause practical work is essential for developing student’s scientific knowledge. The learning of science should involve seeing, handling and manipulating real objects and materials and that teaching science will involve acts of ‘showing’ as well as ‘telling’ (Millar, 2004). In addition, students are able to communicate among themselves with the practical activity while committing to their task with their minds as as their hands. Students will be prompted to handle the phenomena at hand on conceptual level and at the same time promote to make links between the practical and theoretical understandings.
It is a formative and summative type of assessment, given by tutors of the university to myself on my work placement. It contains feedback on our strengths and areas for development. Based on each feedback given, student-teachers are to reflect on it when planning for next lessons and make improvement where it’s needed. It identified my strengths which were my relationship with my students, my effort put into my planning and willingness to try new approaches. For areas of development, it suggested that my explanations needed more clarification and not to over explain things.
CHAPER VI: CONCLUSION 6.1 Introduction This chapter begins with a restatement of the purpose of this study and then a reflection of the research procedure. Next, the answers for the research questions were provided. Limitations of the study and recommendations for further research are included. 6.2.
The researcher will use the triangulation method which supports multiple methods of data collection. In this case, the method consisted of informal interviews, classroom observation and questionnaires. The questionnaires will be handed out after that the researcher has observed a lesson and ask few informal questions. Merriam’s (1998, cited in Tsimboukidou, 2010:117) descriptions on qualitative research’s characteristics were adopted in this study where ‘firstly, the study attempted to understand the situation from both the participants’ and teachers’ perspectives and secondly, the researchers took on the role of the research instrument to sensitively collect and analyse the
Nevertheless, you need to define your focus and/or goal of the study and determine your research orientation whether it be positivist sociology, interpretive sociologist, and/or critical sociologist (book pg 29.) Then determine which methodology is best to monitor, collect information, analyze, and group your subjects. Reach for a scientific
According to Conley, Social Scientists have a set of typical approaches that they pursue in investigating any question that may arise. These rules are known as research methods. They are tools utilized to explore, describe, and explain various social phenomenons in a principled approach. The Two research method that I chose that Conley described in this textbook are Historical Methods and Experimental methods. Experimental methods seek to adjust the social scene in a certain manner for a given example of people and after that track what results that change yields; regularly include comparisons to a control group that did not experience such an intercession.
