DISCOVERY EDU COVE - Creative writing & Problem solving

Postby discoveryeducove » Wed Mar 19, 2014 12:10 am

Every parent knows no two children are mirror images. Every human being has a unique genetic composition and each student is “talented” in different ways.

Teachers acknowledged that every child has their own learning style but not many are willing to go the extra effort to ensure that the needs of all the students in the same class are well taken care of. The culture in Singapore, which emphasizes dominantly on competitive grading system, also contributes to how the teacher conducts or plans the lessons.

Not all children learn in the same manner, and using the same teaching style that the teacher is most comfortable with, might be doing a grave disservice to the child. The older child might be musically inclinced while the other might be more talented in sports. Some children will learn more efficiently hands-on , others will learn best by verbal instruction, while others learn best by reading.

Educators should not try to mould their students to fit their methods.

In a recent qualitative study at a HongKong University, 72% of students were frustrated by a mismatch between teaching and learning style. 76% said it affected their learning. Findings also indicated a direct relationship between learning style and discipline. A conducive learning environment reduces disciplinary and disruption problems.Determining which learning style your child falls under may help you understand why they have problems with mathematics but excel in languages. With this added knowledge, it allows better communication between yourself and your child. Hence, strengthen your relationship with him or her. Advocate lifelong learning and your child will blossom. He or she will be more conscious of their own learning styles and it allows them to approach problems more efficiently.

Understanding their learning style will also help students to

• Develop Workforce Skills,

• Develops Critical Thinking

• Excel in Problem Solving

• Better Communication

• Collaboration

• Global awareness

Some experts believe that students should be expose to different learning styles and adapt each of them to suit their learning needs. However, the learning style of an individual is in their genes. Subconsciously, the student will eventually fall back onto their domineering learning style.Learning styles can be subdivided into as many as nine categories. Nonetheless, the three main categories are Visual, Audio and Kinesthetic.

Teachers should try to plan each lesson in line with these three styles. So no child is left out.



How should the lesson be conducted to suit all learners

To teach Mathematics in a classroom

Visual learners

• Learners are encourged to set a goal and read it out.

• Allow learners to copy notes from the board.

• Using models, drawing pictures and written instructions.

• Highlight the main ideas in a problem sum.



Auditory learners

• Learners use different colours to assist them to remember different formulas.

• Lessons are conducted lecture-styled.

• They are encourged to read the question aloud.

• They can also talk through the question with other classmates.

• They can use a smartphone to record the lesson.



Kinesthetic learners

• Learners are encouraged to try a sum on their own.

• They should scan a new chapter in their Mathematics Textbook before class commences.

• Younger learners are allowed to play with maths props.

• They should be given the permission to stand up to get their work done.





To teach Creative Writing in a classroom



Visual learners

• Usage of mind maps to organise their ideas.

• Graphics or words can be use.

• Students are instructed to highlight phrases with colours.

• Visualise ideas and facts in their minds first.

• Learners are required to recopy their notes during revision.

Auditory learners



• Brainstorming in class.

• Reciting of essays aloud in class or to oneself.



Kinesthetic learners



• Role-playing will be conducted in class.

• Scenes will be related to the topic of the week.

• They are encouraged to share their ideas and illustrate them to the class through actions.



We have also included some tips for parents that would like to revise or study with their children at home.



Teaching Strategies for Parents



If your child is a Kinesthetic learner,

• Allow them to study while sitting on a comfortable lounge chair or bean bag at home.

• Give them permission to take frequent breaks in-between lessons. About 25 minutes of study to 3-5 minutes of break time.

• Parents can encourge them to try reading through coloured transparencies, as this helps focus their attention.



If your child is a Auditory learner,



• Recite or read out information that you want your child to remember several times.

• Have your child answer questions orally.

• Use tape recorders to record or play back lessons conducted in schools or enrichment centres.

• Give directions to your child verbally.



If your child is a visual learner,



• Demostrate what you want your child to do.

• When giving verbal directions, write down key words or use visuals.

• Ensure a quiet learning environment.

• Encourage them to use flash cards when memorizing facts at home.



If we, as educators, can learn how our students learn best, we will greatly enhance not only the quality of their education, but possibly the enjoyment they derive from learning. Understanding their learning style allows a personal connection between educators and the students. :heresmyfish:
