GET EMPOWERED BY C.R.E.A.M.
Transcript of GET EMPOWERED BY C.R.E.A.M.
I as an ESL instructor attempted an action research to motivate my students’ learning in the
PYP Reading/ Writing and Reading Circle 010/030 courses; CEFR Level of Students B1-B2 through the employment of Cottrell’s C.R.E.A.M. framework.
Two new vocab words were sent via
Whats app to the students.
The acronym C.R.E.A.M. was first coined by Cottrel,S (2003: 55).
Be personally involved and by doing things, physically and mentally, in order to make sense of what you learn
Be aware of one’s own desired outcomes; keep oneself on track using short and long-term goals.
Be able to sit with one’s own experience, analyse and evaluate performance, and draw lessons from it
Organize space, time, priorities, state of mind and resources (including Information Technology, IT), to the maximum benefit
Have the confidence to use individual strategies and styles, by applying imagination to learning
Being active fosters learning, motivation and interest.
Being interested and motivated requires reflection and making sense of your experience.
As a result, my students became more creative, reflective, effective, active and motivated!
Each individual strategy in the C.R.E.A.M. framework is in a dependent relationship with each other.
For the enhancement of teaching and learning, it is implied that teachers can make use of the C.R.E.A.M. strategy by designing meaningful activities to motivate their students to learn.
These activities were organized by me, which are very lesson-specific; with an intention to help my students become independent and active learners.
They were asked to find out the meanings of the new vocab by themselves.
Students were effectively recycling these words in there writing tasks and spoken communication.
One simple step resulted in active and motivated learning.
Rationale: Explored Spelling learning strategy through introduction of app ‘quizlet’ which was more accessible and interactive for the learners and old school ‘ look, see and write’ chart which helps the learners to break the syllables and memorize spelling effectively

Paradigm shiftt focuses our attention on the students helping them to become autonomous learners.
Along with this emphasis came the idea of innovation and creating a new field of vision for holistic learning.
What is Paradigm Shift?
Whilst adhering to conformity of English literature activities such as Prediction of the story and 'Fluency dice' were used with a twist to spark interest and motivation among my students to read.
