By the end of this session, you are able to develop a lesson plan applying scientific approach based on your students characteristics include physical, ethical, social, cultural and intellectual aspect.
- How do you formulate your lesson aims?
- How do you start and end a lesson?
- How do you stimulate the higher order of thinking in the classroom?
- What is scientific approach? And how do you integrate it in your lesson?
Put these statements in order of importance
We write aims because:
- our school Principal wants to see aims in our lesson plans.
- students need to be told the focus of the lesson.
- it helps us plan a logical lesson.
- if we have an aim, it is easier to test our students achievement at the end of the lesson.
- it is useful for self-evaluation.
- an observer can more easily judge our lesson.
- it looks professional.
Formulate a Possible Aim for this Lesson Outline
I’m starting by showing a photograph of my new friend. Then I’m going to ask my students to ask me questions about him, e.g. who s/he is, where s/he is from, where s/he lives, etc. After that, I’d like them to draw a picture of a friend and do a similar question and answer task but with their partner.
Five Question to Ask about Lesson Aims
Do students understand what they are doing?
Do students understand why they’re doing the activity?
Do students understand the others for good work?
Are the students learning, or just having fun?
- Thinking skills
Have these skills been taught or just practiced?
What will students be able to the end of the lesson?
Krathwohl's Affective Domain Taxonomy
Bloom’s Taxonomy is a multi-tiered model of classifying thinking by six cognitive levels of complexity. First created in the 1950’s, Bloom’s Taxonomy was revised in the 1990’s in an attempt to make it more relevant for 21st century students and teachers.
