I have always had problems with my classes and trying to get them to have the patience and/openmindeness to be able to discover patterns/rules for themselves. I was always able to cop out of it (naughty me!) by being able to say that they won't need to do this in an exam blahblah (extra naughty !) but i always hated that this would be my fall back. However i am now in a position where i cannot actually do that! I have recently started teaching MYP and am finding that in general the students I teach are better at the Criteria A [knowledge and Understanding ] assessments than the other criteria because that is the way that people naturally teach. (Oh i know there are people out there that this doesnt apply to and you're the very ones this thread is aimed at! So please keep reading!) As a whole they are not very good at Criteria B [investigating patterns ] which then leads to problems with Criteria D [real life applications] Does anybody have any tips or resources they would be willing to share that i would be able to use in lessons to help them develop their skills in this area? Thanks in advance!
