In the recent times, we have seen the schooling structure change drastically. The teaching methods, the timings and even the curriculum, everything seems to be changing with time. Now day’s students no longer stay glued to the blackboard where the teacher is swiftly chalking down the concept or explaining the topic or students jotting down notes as scribble during the professor’s impromptu lecture. Students rely on the lesson to be more interactive and engaging.
in school has become the Broadway of modern education, with its holistic approach to learning. Students are empowered by strengthening their problem-solving skills and critical thinking.
- Brainstorming (various brainstorming methods): It is important to outline and plan beforehand as it helps you to get a good idea of what you need actually first. Since ideas flow like water and creativity knows no boundaries a simple brainstorming before starting the project will give you a visual outcome. Brainstorming is the process where one come up with ideas for the given project. Brainstorming involves techniques like freewriting, listing, clustering, mapping but whichever technique you use there are two essential steps in the brainstorming process:
- Generate ideas
- Decide which ideas are good and which ideas aren’t useful.
- Think, Pair and Share: Think, Pair & Share is a terrific way to put your heads together with a partner to provide the best possible answer to a question. The teacher will give you a topic to think upon a critical question, it may be an experience you’ve had or your opinion on the topic. After critically analyzing the topic its now time to pair with your elbow partner (the student sitting next to you) to discuss the answer that you both came up with. Sharing the answer will enlighten you greatly on the given topic. During the sharing phase, the teacher will ask you to share the thought, opinion, and idea that you and your elbow partner came up with. Think, Pair Share is a cooperative discussion activity.
