Student centered approach and teacher centered approach
The teacher’s expertise is the center of the course. The student’s role is to assimilate the knowledge by listening, watching, reading, and studying. Evaluation is centered on the student’s ability to remember key concepts, often via multiple choice, true/false quizzes, and tests.
Students Centered Approach responsibility on the learners students in more decision-making processes. learning becomes more active. relevant to the students’ own lives and experiences.
TEACHER SKILLS NEEDED IN STUDENT- CENTRED APPROACHES giving useful practical suggestions. acting as a language resource. improvising teaching of language points. giving constructive feedback. monitoring student work. coping with the unexpected. coping with students with different learning styles creating their own materials
Bloom's Taxonomy was created by Benjamin Bloom during the 1950s and is a way to categorize the levels of reasoning skills required in classroom situations. There are six levels in the taxonomy, each requiring a higher level of abstraction from the students.
A picture is worth a thousand thoughts: inquiry with Bloom's taxonomy
When was this picture taken? Where was this picture taken? Knowledge
Comprehension What is happening in this picture? Why are these boys dressed like this?
Application How would you describe the photograph to others? What caption would you write for this photograph (say, in a newspaper)?
Analysis Why are these boys here and not in school? What do you know about their lives based on this photo?
Synthesis What might these boys say about their work in an interview setting? What might they say about their future?
Evaluation What is the significance of this photo for the time period depicted? Compare this photo with one of three boys from today of the same age. How are their lives similar? How are they different?
