STRATEGIES FOR EFFECTIVE TEACHING

STRATEGIES FOR EFFECTIVE TEACHING

Contents o Curricular differentiation (Including taking account of different learning styles) o Some general points on classroom teaching o Summary of strategies that will benefit all learners, including those with SEN o Supporting learners with a specific learning difficulty (SLD) or dyslexia o Supporting learners with a general learning difficulty o Strategies for teaching poor readers What is curricular differentiation? It is a philosophy based on the following set of beliefs: • Pupils who are the same age differ in their readiness to learn, their interests, their styles of learning, their experiences, and their life circumstances. • The differences in pupils are significant enough to make a major impact on what pupils need to learn, the pace at which they need to learn it, and the support they need from teachers and others to learn it well. • Pupils will learn best when supportive adults push them slightly beyond where they can work without assistance. • Pupils will learn best when they can make a connection between the curriculum and their interests and life experiences. • Pupil will learn best when learning opportunities are natural. Differentiation can occur based on pupil’s readiness, interest, and learning profile. This must be reconciled with what the pupil needs to learn and how that learning will take place (i.e. Group work, project work, paired work, individual work). There is no need to feel confined by curriculum based courses as such courses tell us what to teach, differentiation on the other hand guides us on how to teach. Differentiation simply suggests ways in which we can make that Curriculum work best for varied learners, by providing materials and tasks at varied level of difficulty, with varying degrees of scaffolding/pupil support and with time variations, which tap into pupils’ varying interests. Teachers can encourage pupil success by varying ways in which pupils work (e.g. individually, in pairs, in groups). There is also a greater chance of pupil success if all learning styles are incorporated into the class plan (e.g. auditory, visual and kinaesthetic modes). Learning is more effective when two modes are activated while learning. (See below for a quick note on learning styles) It is also important that a teacher

Interaction model of the interface nasicon with aqueous solution

Complex impedance spectroscopy (CIS) study was carried out using the 4- electrodes cell arrangement with NASICON membrane. The physical model developed in this work was based on own CIS characteristic of the system NASICON/solution, and it accurately described the experimental diagrams. The electronic parameters could be determined from the fittings with the designed model.

Intestinal stem cells isolation and culture characteristics in vitro by morphometry and flow cytometry

Intestinal stem cells isolation and culture characteristics in vitro by morphometry and flow cytometry

Adult stem cells are crucial for maintaining proper function and repair of tissues. The epithelium of the adult mammalian intestine is a constant dialog with its underlying mesenchyme to direct progenitor proliferation, lineage commitment, terminal differentiation and ultimately cell death. The epithelium is shaped into spatially distinct compartments that are dedicated to each of these events. The unique intestinal orchestration makes the crypt as one of the most accessible models for the study of adult stem cell biology (Barker et al., 2007).
