What do I think I know?
What do I want to learn?
It's important that the children know what they
will be doing for the unit and the associated learning tasks
Teacher as deliverer of knowledge.
One size fits all education.
Definite amount and structure to curriculum to teach.
Testing as assessment.
Teacher as facilitator.
Self - directed learning allowed
Group work, as well as differentiated work.
Technology as a tool to help learning.
A focus on "learning" rather than teaching.
Outdoor learning and use of community
Formative assessment as well as summative assessment
is objective, factual, inarguable.
You "tell" knowledge. You test knowledge.
you "do" skills. They take time to develop.
Skills develop in stages.
you "evaluate" understanding qualitatively. You need to infer from the student, is subjective. Hard to measure/quantify exactly. Evolves with time, never really ends.
To engage the students with the topic.
As an assessment of what they know.
To direct the learning journey ahead.
To refer to during the unit and add information, and resolve questions asked.
