active learning

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by jreid43, Jan 30, 2012.

  1. Dear James,
    On my last placement I found it very difficult to get standard grade pupils interacted in the lesson, especially on questioning or doing any active learning. It seemed they preffered to be fed information rather than engage in the lesson. does anyone have any suggestions for me to improve ont this without being patronising to them? The active learning i have observed is mostly aimed at lower secondary.
  2. Sorry, that's not a term I have ever come across before.
  3. I have similar issues with my standard grade classes... By the way, as far as I can tell you've posted on student boards, rather than Scotland-specific ones - might explain the terminology question :)

    Am sure any advice would hold true wherever you are though!
  4. yes i know, thanks.
