Motivational Framework
Culturally Responsive Teaching:
Their Relation to
Developmental & Apprenticeship
Teaching Perspectives Developing
Attitude How do we create or affirm a favorable disposition toward learning through personal relevance and learner volition? Creating a favorable disposition toward the learning experience through personal relevance and volition. Establishing
Inclusion Creating a learning atmosphere in which learners and teachers feel respected and connected to one another. Effective teaching is a process of enculturating students into a set of social norms and ways of working APPRENTICESHIP Engendering
Competence How do we create or affirm an understanding that learners have effectively learned something they value and perceive as authentic to their real world? Creating an understanding that learners are effective in learning something they value The Developmental Teaching Perspective does not rely as heavily on this stage of the Motivational Framework as it does to the others. DEVELOPMENTAL DEVELOPMENTAL How do we create or affirm a learning atmosphere where we feel respected by and connected to one another? Effective teaching must be planned and conducted from a "learner's point of view" By doing so at the beginning of a lesson you are:

a.) Giving the learner a sense that the teacher can see their side of learning; "walking in their shoes".

b.) Giving the teacher a sense of how the learner thinks and reasons about the concept. Teachers know what their learners can do on their own and what they can do with guidance and direction

This allows:

a.) The teacher to know when he/she is going to be needed by the learner

b.)The learner to feel the teacher acknowledges their competencies This development strategy is well suited for both Developmental Teaching & Apprenticeship Teaching because:

The teacher is creating a learning atmosphere that is molded to the learners needs
Developmental: from the learner's point of view
Apprenticeship: Awareness of when, and when not, to guide the learners It is important in this strategy that teachers ensure the learners can relate to the subject in order for them to learn from it.

The Developmental Teaching Perspective encompasses this strategy the most as it uses 'bridging knowledge' that provides examples that are meaningful to the learner. Finding ways to relate the material to the learner enables them to create a favorable disposition to the coursework. ENHANCING
MEANING How do we create engaging and challenging learning experiences that include learners' perspectives & values? Creating challenging and engaging learning experiences that include learners' perspectives and values DEVELOPMENTAL Teachers have the ability to help the learners develop increasingly complex & sophisticated cognitive structures for comprehending the content The achievement of this can be seen in:

a.) Effective Questioning: challenging learners to move from relatively simple, to more complex forms of thinking

b.) Bridging Knowledge: provides examples that are meaningful to the learner
(i.e. encompassing their values) APPRENTICESHIP Teachers enable learners tasks to proceed from simple to complex, allowing for different points of observation and entry depending upon the learners' capability Allowing tasks to move from simple to complex enables a smooth transition from an area of study to the next This development strategy is well suited for both Developmental Teaching & Apprenticeship Teaching because:

The teacher is enabling a learning environment that engages the learner in the material and challenges their experiences

Developmental: Questions, problems, cases & examples to form bridges from a simpler way of thinking to a more complex

Apprenticeship: Providing smooth transitions from simple studies to more complex This strategy is more suited for the Apprenticeship Teaching rather
than the Developmental

While Developmental Teaching form their teachings around the learners' point of view, Apprenticeship pushes it's learners to a limit where they know they can understand concepts on their own as independent learners, therefore the teacher knows the learner has knowledge of the concepts being taught because they do not rely on the teacher for as much guidance APPRENTICESHIP However, a Developmental teacher ensures that the learner is getting a grasp of the concepts by working hard to adapting their knowledge to each learner's level of understanding and ways of thinking with the hopes that by doing so, the learner will become more motivated to learn more in regards to the subject, and by the end of the course, the student would have a personal connection to it As learners mature and become more competent, the teacher's role changes Over time, teachers offer less direction and give more responsibility to the learner as the learners progress from dependent learners to independent workers
