5 Good Teaching : Traditional teaching approach involves: –an explanation –a demonstration –organised practice –teacher feedback –all children involved in the same task at the same skill level –where ‘time on task’ seen as important indicator of ‘effective teaching’ This is the approach that most of you have been exposed to at school

6 Good Teaching : Methodology: How we get across learning to our students, eg –selling our product –believing in the product –the credibility of the product Need to combine content knowledge with the skills of teaching, and Learn the tricks of the trade

7 Good Teaching : Memorable teacher task: Think back to a memorable teacher you had, one who made a positive difference in your education: –share your memories of this teacher with a partner –write three sentences about what made that teacher memorable –give a list of words that describe the qualities of that teacher

15 General Model of Teaching : Learners Teacher Ideals Context Content

16 Five Perspectives on Teaching : Transmission Developmental Apprenticeship Nurturing Social Reform

17 Five Perspectives on Teaching : Each perspective contains: Key beliefs Governing assumptions Primary responsibilities Typical strategies Common difficulties

18 Transmission Perspective : Content and teacher are the dominant features Governing assumptions: deep respect for content objective/fact based hierarchical progression of content learning

19 Transmission Perspective (cont) : Key beliefs: Content is learned in its authorised form Process of learning is additive Role of the teacher is to represent content Content can be transferred from the teacher to the learner

20 Transmission Perspective (cont) : Primary responsibilities : Be thoroughly prepared Specific, clear objectives Select and sequence materials Provide clear and well organised lectures Provide answers to questions Correct errors/use feedback

21 Developmental Perspective : Learners and their understanding of the environment are the dominant features Governing assumptions: Knowledge is individually constructed Authority is horizontal rather than hierarchical

22 Developmental Perspective (cont) : Key beliefs: Learning is a search for meaning Learners search through association Prior knowledge influences the search Less (coverage) can be more (understanding)

23 Developmental Perspective (cont) : Typical responsibilities : Understand learners prior knowledge Activate learners prior knowledge Adapt expertise/knowledge to the learners level Plan for active learning Keep assessment consistent with learning tasks Assess for reasoning not just answers

24 Developmental Perspective (cont) : Typical strategies: Teach from learners point of view Use examples, cases, problems to bridge students’ understanding Let students construct their own understanding Challenge students’ ways of understanding

25 Apprenticeship Perspective: The context is the dominant feature Learning is a process of enculturation into a new discipline / community of practice The product of learning is: competence or skilled performance identity in relation to the community of practice Novices start on the margins and gradually move toward the centre of the community’s work

26 Nurturing Perspective: The interaction between the teacher and the learner is the dominant feature Learners must believe that success is due to their effort and ability Self-concept is strongly emphasised

27 Teaching Perspectives: Crucial questions What should my students learn? Why is that important? How will I know if they have learned? What is my role as a teacher? What is their role as students?

28 Teaching Philosophy How do I teach? ACTIONS What am I trying to accomplish? INTENTIONS Why is that important? BELIEFS
