5  Student based learning  Interactive learning activities  All learning must be meaningful and significant  Think-pair-share mode of learning.  Group work and peer scaffolding.  Exploratory learning  Learning activities need to be fun and interesting  All theoretical concepts must be reinforced through a practical activity whenever possible Image Source Page: http://www.teachinglearning.net/

6 What are they?  Getting students into groups  Group learning strategies  Defining roles for students  How instructions are delivered (visual, aural etc.)  Objectives of lesson/day  Explicit quality criteria Image Source: travel-to-discover-ghana.com Image Source: partoftheplan.com

7 Why is group work an important teaching strategy?  Value each others opinions & ideas  Improve confidence  Part of a team  Responsible for own learning  Promotes a variety of different learning styles in order to enhance learning

8 Examples  Strategies to get students into groups  Allocate student roles  Group structures (e.g. think-pair-share, jigsaw etc.) Image Source: y2socialcomputing.wordpress.com

9 Group Work Implementation:  How do you create groups?  How do students work within groups?  How will they demonstrate their learning? (E.g. Group presentation, role-play, performance, create a product etc.)  Issues (Student imbalance of performance, group dynamics, unequal share of workload) Image Source: bilbea.edublogs.org Image Source: thisiswhyiamblog.blogspot.com

10 General  Students enrolled in summer school are generally well behaved and there are rarely any behavioural issues.  Important to structure programs to prevent behaviour management issues through engaging students in meaningful & stimulating activities  Administrative processes – roll marking, legal requirements, duty of care etc.  Establish a clear set of parameters from the start.  Be firm, fair and consistent with expectations of behaviour.  Seek to establish a responsible adult orientated learning environment.

11 Strategies  Utilise ice-breaker & energiser activities to develop a rapport with students  Instil a Safe, Respectful, Learning Culture & Environment  Build a strong rapport with students, get to know them  Be consistent with disciplining students  Set clear expectations and subsequent consequences

12 Examples of non-compliant behaviour 1) Use of mobile phones during sessions 2) Student wanting to change allocated group 3) Punctuality – lateness 4) Student wandering around at lunchtime in the wrong areas 5) Student being disinterested and not engaging in the program, activities or work Image Source: learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org Image Source: deyncourtprimary.co.uk
