What is the best structure for a lesson or sequence of lessons?
If you are reading this post you hopefully buy into the idea that a teacher’s core role in education is to create memorable learning experiences that promote the 3Es; excitement and engagement which leads to students excelling at school and subsequently in life.
Therefore, in lessons, what is the right balance between content, discovery and reflection? Does it depend on the age, ability, gender or size of the class?
Furthermore, what is the best combination of independent, interdependent and dependent learning to generate the optimum ‘learning mix’?
For the divergent thinkers out there, plenty of questions with many possible solutions; I would love to hear your thoughts…
