I like to investigate and see a situation from different angles, and I will support this by giving examples from past experiences, furthermore, I will reflect on how I can become a better learner. Kolb describes a four stage cycle to explain learning, the first stage is concrete experience; this involves actually doing a particular task. The second stage is reflective observation; this is the thinking part, it is where you reflect on the task. The third stage is abstract conceptualization; it is where you speculate; learn from the experience and think of ways to improve yourself. Finally the last stage, active experimentation, as its name implies, it is where you experiment to come up with the best possible way of doing the task (Payne and Whittaker, 2006).

This paper, in a matrix format, will: 1. Name the four types of educational philosophies, with definitions; 2. Identifies what information is taught under the philosophy; 3.

I can speculate that Mr. Stuart may have read about natural education as proposed by Rousseau and expanded upon by Pestalozzi. However, I also believe Mr. Stuart also believed in the benefit of a traditional curriculum since he teaches algebra, geometry, language arts, history, and science. Personally, I believe Mr. Stuart was very wise to show relevance to his students before continuing to more theoretical concepts. This aspect of the book further cemented my belief that when students understand how the subject is relevant to them, learning is activated and students are more engaged from the beginning. While reading the book, I realized that Mr. Stuart’s methodology of teaching seemed to evolve throughout his teaching experiences, as do all teachers who actively reflect on their practice.
Critical evaluation of the advantages/disadvantages of a cross curricular approach and discrete subject based approach to teaching. Introduction A teacher’s job is to encourage passion for learning and a fascination within children that heartens them as an individual, the curriculum is the tool designed to deliver this. Providing the utensils within the intellectual and social settings to encourage learning and growth as a person the curriculum has many outlines and has long been deliberated on numerous occasions, as we are on the brink of the latest version; it isn’t always what is being taught but how it’s being taught that is, for the most part, beneficial. As Savage (2011) queries should it be a cross curricular approach or a discrete subject based approach to teaching? The delivery of a cross curricular curriculum is one that overlaps and coincides classroom subjects with one another, Shoemaker (1989) identified that the endeavours to deliver he numerous strands to the curriculum entwined within a number of lessons to replicate real life.
The act of manipulating each piece helps the children to solve a problem and to develop critical thinking. Puzzles come in a whole range of themes such as alphabet letters, animals, shapes, numbers and vegetables. Our theme is about post cards so we decided to make jigsaw puzzles out of post cards. They’re not only learning about the theme but also developing their skills on it. Children increase their visual spatial awareness and develop a deeper understanding about the theme.

Cat breeding might be something you think you could do either as a hobby or a business. You love your cat, you love kittens, cats get pregnant easily and you can sell those kittens for some serious dollars. What could be easier. Well to begin with, you will need a pure bred kitten if you don't already own one. This will require researching the different breeds and choosing which type you want to breed from.
There are colour coded information boxes, of which the most useful I found to be: the practical tips to help prepare students for learning and deepen their knowledge during learning; and the issues that can arise in teaching which deals with things such as making you aware of and avoiding potential problems and giving insights as to what misconceptions the student may have, and areas in which they may struggle, why, and strategies to overcome these; and links and ideas to integrate technology with content areas, with web links provided where relevant. All concepts are discussed in detail with examples given and links to ACARA in certain places. There is an accompanying website providing further reading suggestions and web links.

Five conceptions of curriculum: their roots and implications for curriculum planning - Eisner begins by explaining how Curricula and curricular mandates are considered carefully and are widely taken to be important to interest groups, governments, school districts and their staffs. - They spend much time and effort into debating and discussing about the curriculum. He claims it to be very important to direct the work of schooling and also for educational discourse and policymaking because they give much influence to the students’ education. - there are conflicts in the curriculum because they are only based on the form and content of curriculum and the goals toward which schools should strive. All curricula emerge from ideas about what should be taught and learned, and how such teaching and learning might best be undertaken and then certified Questions like “ What knowledge is of most worth” are asked behind the prescription and development of all curricula- because it is the knowledge that is of most worth that education should, seemingly, reflect.
