Behavioral learning theories applied in real classroom work:
Behavioral Learning Theories -
the teacher allows the students to do things independently
the teacher asks the children to listen to who ever is talking in front of the class so that when it is already their turn, others would also listen to what they want to say
Cognitive Learning Theories -
the teacher allows the children to share their insights about the topic
the teacher gives the children enough time to think for answers and be able to deliver what he/she has inside his/her mind.
Discovery Learning -
The teacher provides a manipulative or an actual figure that would help children easily understand the topic and remember all the information that has been taught by the teacher
Reception Learning -
The teacher will ask one student to read everything that is written on the board. The words written on the board are words which are new to the children's vocabulary. After reading, the teacher will ask the children if they understood what their fellow classmate have read. Then the teacher will explain the meaning of the words that she used.
