  • TIME magazine’s most important person of the century. “…Only recently Canadian researchers, probing those pickled remains, found that he had an unusually large inferior parietal lobe--a center of mathematical thought and spatial imagery--and shorter connections between the frontal and temporal lobes…”
  • Born February 28, 1907 this Hillsboro, the Ohio native graduated from Ohio State University in 1930. Moving to New York City in 1932 he secured a job with the Associated Press Syndicate and created his first strip, "The Gay Thirties", a single panel strip. In 1933 he created his first popular character in "Dickie Dare", an adventure strip featuring a small boy. The following year, when Captain Joseph Patterson was looking for an artist/writer to create a new adventure strip fro the Daily News, he tapped Caniff, who in turn created "Terry & the Pirates", and the rest is history. Terry was an immediate smash hit when it debuted on October 22, 1934 (as a daily strip, the Sunday page first appeared in December), and it's success propelled Caniff forever into the eyes of the American public. v

  • Born Doris Mary Ann von Kappelhoff in Cincinatti, Ohio on April 3, 1924, she had originally hoped to be a ballet dancer, but that dream died when she was seriously injured in an automobile accident and was hospitalized for a year at the age of 14, just after winning a talent contest as a dancer. But she didn't let that stop her. She took singing lessons, and got jobs singing with bands in the 1940s, including Bob Crosby and Les Brown. She later appeared with Frank Sinatra and Artie Shaw on "Saturday Night Hit Parade." She first appeared on film in 1948, in "Romance on the High Seas," when Betty Hutton was unable to do the part. She lent her talents to a string of Warner Brothers light musical comedies from 1949 to 1955, including "It's a Great Feeling," "My Dream Is Yours," "Tea for Two," "The West Point Story," "Lullaby of Broadway," "On Moonlight Bay," "April in Paris," "I'll See You in My Dreams," "By the Light of the Silvery Moon," "Lucky Me," and "Young at Heart." Her most memorable films during this period were probably "Calamity Jane" (1953), Alfred Hitchcock's remake of "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1956), in which she appeared with Jimmy Stewart and sang what was to become her trademark song, "Que, Sera, Sera," and 1957's "The Pajama Game," the Broadway hit that featured brilliant choreography by Bob Fosse.
  • He was born in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, in 1831. Fatherless at two, he later drove canal boat teams, somehow earning enough money for an education. He was graduated from Williams College in Massachusetts in 1856, and he returned to the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute (later Hiram College) in Ohio as a classics professor. Within a year he was made its president. At the 1880 Republican Convention, Garfield failed to win the Presidential nomination for his friend John Sherman. Finally, on the 36th ballot, Garfield himself became the "dark horse" nominee. By a margin of only 10,000 popular votes, Garfield defeated the Democratic nominee, Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock.
  • Meet Helen Keller, a woman from the small farm town of Tuscumbia, Alabama who taught the world to respect people who are blind and deaf. Her mission came from her own life; when she was 1 1/2, she was extremely ill, and she lost both her vision and hearing. It was like entering a different world, with completely new rules, and she got very frustrated. By the time she was 7, her parents knew they needed help, so they hired a tutor named Anne Sullivan.
  • Sacajawea was born about 1790 in what is now the state of Idaho. She was one of the "Snake People," otherwise known as the Shoshone. Her name in Hidatsa was Tsi-ki-ka-wi-as, "Bird Woman. In Shoshone, her name means "Boat Pusher." She was stolen during a raid by a Hidatsa tribe when she was a young girl and taken to their village near what is now Bismark, N. Dakota. Some time afterward the French-Canadian trapper and fur trader, Charbonneau bought Sacajawea and her companion, Otter Woman, as wives. When her husband joined the expedition at Fort Mandan in the Dakotas, Sacajawea was about 16 years old and pregnant. The expedition spent the winter at Fort Mandan and Sacajawea's baby, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, was born on Feb. 11 or 12, 1805. He was also given the Shoshone name, Pomp, meaning First Born. The expedition resumed the westward trek on April 7, 1805. Their route was along the Missouri River, west to the mountains. On May 14, 1805 an incident occurred which was typical of the calmness and self-possession Sacajawea was to display throughout the journey. The incident was recorded in the diaries because of it's significance to the success of the expedition. On that day, the boat Sacajawea was in was hit by a sudden storm squall. It keeled over on it's side and nearly capsized. As the other members of the crew worked desperately to right the boat, Sacajawea, with her baby strapped to her back, busied herself with retrieving the valuable books and instruments that floated out of the boat. They had been wrapped in waterproof packages for protection and, thanks to Sacajawea's courage and quick actions, suffered no damage. Contrary to popular opinion, Sacajawea did not serve as a guide for the party. She only influenced the direction taken by the expedition one time, after reaching the area where her people hunted she indicated they should take a tributary of the Beaverhead River to get to the mountains where her people lived and where Lewis and Clark hoped to buy horses. On August 15, 1805 Sacajawea was re-united with her tribe, only to learn that all her family had died, with the exception of two brothers and the son of her oldest sister, whom she adopted. One of her brothers, Cameahwait, was head chief of the Shoshone. The Shoshone chief agreed to sell the party the horses they needed for the trek through the mountains. He also sketched a map of the country to the west and provided a guide, Old Toby, who took them through the mountains and safely to the Nez Perce country. where they resumed river travel. Throughout the expedition, Sacajawea maintained a helpful, uncomplaining attitude of cheefulness in the face of hardship. This was so remarkable that it was commented on by all the men who kept diaries. There is one record of her complaining, however. While wintering on the Columbia River before starting their journey back to the east, nearby Indians reported that a whale had washed up on the beach about 35 miles from the fort. Sacajawea said that she had traveled a long way to see the great waters and, now that a monstrous fish was also to be seen, she thought it "very hard" that she could not be permitted to see it, and the ocean too. Captain Clark took a party of two canoes, including Sacajawea and her husband, to find the whale and possibly obtain some blubber. By the time they arrived there was nothing left but the skeleton, but they were able to buy about 35 pounds of blubber. After the expedition was over in the summer of 1806, Sacajawea, her husband and son remained at Fort Mandan where Lewis and Clark had found them. In August 1806, Captain Clark wrote to Charbonneau and invited him to come to St. Louis and bring his family, or to send Jean Baptiste to Clark for schooling. Charbonneau and Sacajawea accepted the offer and lived near St. Louis for a time. In March 1811, however, Charbonneau sold his land back to Clark and returned to the Dakotas with Sacajawea. Their son remained in St. Louis in the care of Cpt. Clark, who was the Indian Agent of the Louisiana Purchase at that time. What became of Sacajawea after leaving St. Louis? There are two widely varying stories, with no proof of either. The first is that she died on Dec. 20, 1812. This information came from the records of John C. Luttig, the clerk at Ft. Manuel, SD who wrote: "This evening the wife of Charbonneau, a Snake squaw, died of a putrid fever. She was a good and the best woman in the fort, aged about 25 years. She left a fine infant girl." It is a fact that, in March 1813, John Luttig returned to St. Louis with a baby whom he called "Sacajawea's Lizette." In August 1813, he applied to be her guardian, as well as that of a boy called "Toussaint," but the court record shows his name crossed out and Cpt. William Clark's written in. Jean Baptiste Charbonneau was often called Toussaint. John Luttig died in 1815. Shoshone oral tradition says that Sacajawea did not die in 1813, but instead, wandered the west for a few years and eventually returned to her tribe on the Wind River Reservation. Tradition says she died there on April 9, 1884, a venerated and influential member of the tribe, and is buried between her son, Jean Baptiste, and her sister's son, Bazil, whom she adopted. There is a monument over the grave on the Wind River Reservation, of the woman called Sacajawea. Many people who were living at the time wrote and told that it was she who traveled with Lewis and Clark to the great water and that the woman who died at Fort Manuel was another wife of Toussaint Charbonneau. There is no record of what became of Lizette. There is a baptismal record in Westport, MO for Victoire, daughter of Joseph Vertifeuille and Elizabeth Carboneau. It is not known if this was Lizette Charbonneau, Sacajawea's daughter or not. Jean Baptiste Charbonneau lived at least until 1866. His life can be traced through various records of explorers and fur traders up until that time. He was said to be a remarkable man; superior as a guide and trapper, but also well-educated and conversant in French, German and Spanish as well as his native Shoshone. He was with Prince Paul of Wurttemberg on his travels of the American West in 1823, and returned with him to Germany where he stayed for several years, returning in 1829. He was with Jim Bridger in 1832, with Kit Carson in 1839 and in charge of a fur-trading party in 1842 when they met Charles Fremont. He was included in George Frederick Ruxton's book, "Life in the Far West" as one of the important fur traders of that time. He was with Lt. Abert on an exploration down the Canadian River and with Col. Philip Cooke and his troops from New Mexico to California. In 1866 he started for the gold fields in Montana and Idaho, but is said to have died on Cow Creek near the present town of Danner, Oregon in 1866. Shoshone oral traditions, however, say that he returned to his tribe during that time and was re-united with his mother, Sacajawea where he lived until his death in 1885.

  • What is intelligence? According to Gardner, intelligence is “the capacity to solve problems or to fashion products that are valued in one or more cultural settings” (Gardner & Hatch, 1989) “all societies value different types of intelligences” (Gardner, 1983)
  • Howard Gardner claims • we all possess all of these intelligences but in varying degrees of strength, skill and limitation • just as we all look different and have unique personalities and temperaments, we also have different profiles of intelligences • no one kind of intelligence is better than another • each intelligence has its own sphere of expertise • intelligences are independent of each another.
  • Gardner’s 8 Intelligences are: • 1. Logical-mathematical • (associated with scientific thinking) • 2. Verbal-linguistic • (the production of language and communication) • 3. Musical- rhythmic • (recognition and use of sounds) • 4. Naturalist • (ability to work with nature)
  • • 5. Visual-spatial • (deals with visual arts) • 6. Inter-relational • (inter personal skills) • 7. Intra-relational • (understanding of self) • 8. Bodily-kinesthetic • (associated with body movements)

  • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences • Linguistic intelligence
  • Linguistic If you have strong linguistic intelligence you might learn better by • Reading • Memorizing • Playing word games (Scrabble, Anagrams, Password) • Making up rhymes, puns • Using the internet
  • Linguistic Intelligence • often called verbal/linguistic intelligence • having mastery of language • ability to manipulate language to express oneself rhetorically or poetically • use language as a means to remember information
  • Verbal/Linguistic intelligence refers to an individual's ability to understand and manipulate words and languages. Everyone is thought to possess this intelligence at some level. This includes reading, writing, speaking, and other forms of verbal and written communication.
  • • Teachers can enhance their students' verbal/linguistic intelligence by having them keep journals, play word games, and by encouraging discussion. People with strong rhetorical and oratory skills such as poets, authors, and attorneys exhibit strong Linguistic intelligence. Some examples are T.S. Elliot, Maya Angelou, and Martin Luther King Jr. Traditionally, Linguistic intelligence and Logical/Mathematical intelligence have been highly valued in education and learning environments.
  • Word Smarts
  • are usually good at: • Reading fiction and non-fiction • Writing letters, reports, scripts etc. • Talking • Debating • Word puzzles
  • are usually good at: • Making up and telling jokes • Storytelling • Emailing • Listening to tapes and people • Poetry
  • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences • Linguistic intelligence • Logical/Mathematical intelligence
  • Logical/Mathematical Learner If you have strong logical-mathematical intelligence you might learn better by • Recording information systematically • Setting up experiments (“What if…?”) • Playing strategy games (Chess, Checkers) • Analyzing data • Asking logical questions • Using the internet
  • Logical/Mathematical Intelligence • ability to detect patterns, reason deductively and think logically • often associated with scientific and mathematical thinking
  • Logical/Mathematical intelligence refers to an individual's ability to do things with data: collect, and organize, analyze and interpret, conclude and predict. Individuals strong in this intelligence see patterns and relationships. These individuals are oriented toward thinking: inductive and deductive logic, numeration, and abstract patterns. They would be a contemplative problem solver; one who likes to play strategy games and to solve mathematical problems.
  • • Being strong in this intelligence often implies great scientific ability. This is the kind of intelligence studied and documented by Piaget. Teachers can strengthen this intelligence by encouraging the use of computer programming languages, critical-thinking activities, linear outlining, Piagetian cognitive stretching exercises, science-fiction scenarios, logic puzzles, and through the use of logical/sequential presentation of subject matter. Some real life examples people who are gifted with this intelligence are Albert Einstein, Niehls Bohr, and John Dewey.
  • Math/ Logic Smarts
  • are usually good at: • Mazes and puzzles • Graphing • Mathematics and numbers • Problem solving • Timelines
  • are usually good at: • Strategic games and codes • Spreadsheets and databases • Computer games • Patterning and sequencing • Fact finding and collecting
  • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences • Linguistic intelligence • Logical/Mathematical intelligence • Visual/Spatial intelligence
  • Spatial Learner If you have strong spatial intelligence you might learn better by • Studying pictures • Watching videos • Using visual, tangible aids • Doing mazes, puzzles • Making predictions • Using the internet
  • Visual / Spatial Intelligence • gives one the ability to manipulate and create mental images in order to solve problems • this intelligence is not limited to visual domains • Gardner notes that spatial intelligence is also formed in blind children.
  • • Visual/Spatial intelligence refers to the ability to form and manipulate a mental model. Individuals with strength in this area depend on visual thinking and are very imaginative. People with this kind of intelligence tend to learn most readily from visual presentations such as movies, pictures, videos, and demonstrations using models and props. They like to draw, paint, or sculpt their ideas and often express their feelings and moods through art. These individuals often daydream, imagine and pretend
  • • They are good at reading diagrams and maps and enjoy solving mazes and jigsaw puzzles. Teachers can foster this intelligence by utilizing charts, graphs, diagrams, graphic organizers, videotapes, color, art activities, doodling, microscopes and computer graphics software. It could be characterized as right-brain activity. Pablo Picasso, Bobby Fischer, and Georgia O'Keefe are some examples of people gifted with this intelligence.
  • Picture Smarts
  • are usually good at: • Drawing and painting • Cartooning and doodling • Reading and making maps • Sketching and illustrating • Making murals, charts, posters, • collages, statues and mobiles
  • are usually good at: • Photography • Creating and understanding films • Making constructions and models
  • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences • Linguistic intelligence • Logical/Mathematical intelligence • Visual/Spatial intelligence • Musical intelligence
  • Musical Learner If you have strong musical intelligence you might learn better by • Listening to recordings • Talking to yourself • Making up songs • Mentally repeating information • Reading aloud • Changing tempo
  • Musical Intelligence • encompasses the capability to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms • auditory functions are required for a person to develop this intelligence in relation to pitch and tone, but it is not needed for the knowledge of rhythm
  • • Musical intelligence refers to the ability to understand, create, and interpret musical pitches, timbre, rhythm, and tones and the capability to compose music. Teachers can integrate activities into their lessons that encourage students' musical intelligence by playing music for the class and assigning tasks that involve students creating lyrics about the material being taught. Composers and instrumentalists are individuals with strength in this area. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Louis Armstrong are examples.
  • Music Smarts
  • are usually good at: • Singing • Playing a musical instrument • Remembering songs • Making up song lyrics • Tapping and clapping
  • are usually good at: • Writing jingles • Composing music • Performing music for a group • Listening to music • Understanding music
  • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences • Linguistic intelligence • Logical/Mathematical intelligence • Visual/Spatial intelligence • Musical intelligence • Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence
  • Bodily/Kinesthetic Learner If you have strong bodily-kinesthetic intelligence you might learn better by • Doing role plays • Constructing physical examples • Exercising while reviewing • Visiting museums, institutions, parks • Asking logical questions • Using the internet
  • Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence • ability of one’s one mental abilities to coordinate one’s own bodily movements • this intelligence challenges the popular belief that mental and physical activity are unrelated
  • • Bodily/Kinesthetic intelligence refers to people who process information through the sensations they feel in their bodies. These people like to move around, touch the people they are talking to and act things out. They are good at small and large muscle skills; they enjoy all types of sports and physical activities. They often express themselves through dance.
  • • Teachers may encourage growth in this area of intelligence through the use of touching, feeling, movement, improvisation, "hands-on" activities, permission to squirm and wiggle, facial expressions and physical relaxation exercises. Some examples of people who are gifted with this intelligence are Michael Jordan, Martina Navratilova, and Jim Carrey.
  • Body Smarts
  • are usually good at: • Dancing • Sports and athletics • Throwing, catching, jumping etc. • Building and manipulating

  • Interpersonal Learner If you have strong interpersonal intelligence you might learn better by • Studying in groups • Comparing information with others • Interviewing experts • Relating personal experiences • Being a teamplayer • Doing cooperative projects
  • Interpersonal Intelligence • ability to recognize feelings, intentions and motivations of others
  • • Although Gardner classifies interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligences separately, there is a lot of interplay between the two and they are often grouped together. Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to interpret and respond to the moods, emotions, motivations, and actions of others. Interpersonal intelligence also requires good communication and interaction skills, and the ability show empathy towards the feelings of other individuals.
  • • Teachers can encourage the growth of Interpersonal Intelligences by designing lessons that include group work and by planning cooperative learning activities. Counselors and social workers are professions that require strength in this area. Some examples of people with this intelligence include Gandhi, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton.

  • Intrapersonal Learner If you have strong intrapersonal intelligence you might learn better by • Avoiding distractions • Establishing personal goals • Playing solitary games • Setting own pace • Working alone • Relating personal experiences
  • Intrapersonal Intelligence • ability to understand one’s own feelings and motivations • ability to use that information to regulate one’s own life
  • • Intrapersonal Intelligence, simply put, is the ability to know oneself. It is an internalized version of Interpersonal Intelligence. To exhibit strength in Intrapersonal Intelligence, an individual must be able to understand their own emotions, motivations, and be aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. Teachers can assign reflective activities, such as journaling to awaken students' Intrapersonal Intelligence
  • • . Its important to note that this intelligence involves the use of all others. An individual should tap into their other intelligences to completely express their Intrapersonal Intelligence. Authors of classic autobiographies such as Jean Paul Satre and Frederick Douglas are examples of individuals who exhibited strong Interpersonal Intelligence in their lifetimes.

  • Naturalist Intelligence • ability to recognize and categorize plants, animals and other objects in nature
  • • Naturalistic intelligence is seen in someone who recognizes and classifies plants, animals, and minerals including a mastery of taxonomies. They are holistic thinkers who recognize specimens and value the unusual. They are aware of species such as the flora and fauna around them. They notice natural and artificial taxonomies such as dinosaurs to algae and cars to clothes.
  • • Teachers can best foster this intelligence by using relationships among systems of species, and classification activities. Encourage the study of relationships such as patterns and order, and compare- and-contrast sets of groups or look at connections to real life and science issues. Charles Darwin and John Muir are examples of people gifted in this way.

  • • The ninth intelligence that has yet to experience full acceptance by educators in the classroom. This is Existential intelligence, which encompasses the ability to pose and ponder questions regarding the existence -- including life and death. This would be in the domain of philosophers and religious leaders.

  • PRINCIPLES OFPRINCIPLES OF LEARNINGLEARNING MRS. ELENA N. MENDOZA
  • PRINCIPLES OF LEARNINGPRINCIPLES OF LEARNING 1. The Learner must clearly perceive the goal. Learners readily understand and internalize concepts and ideas which are relevant to their own needs and problems.
  • 2. The learner must be psychologically and physiologically ready. This principle is in consonance with Thorndike’s law of readiness and law of effect. The law of readiness states that when a person is prepared to respond or act, giving the response is satisfying and being prevented from doing so is annoying. The law of effect states that learning is strengthened when it results in satisfaction but is weakened if it leads to annoyance
  • 3. The learner must be motivated to learn. That the learner must be motivated to learn is a basic principle in the teaching-learning process. Every learner in the classroom however, is a unique individual. The learner’s experiential background varies from learner to learner.
  • Types of Motivation Extrinsic Motivation Intrinsic Motivation It comes in the form of reward and punishment. Means creating a desire to learn a subject because it is worth knowing.
  • Some principles on motivating learnersSome principles on motivating learners which are significant for teachers arewhich are significant for teachers are enumerated below.enumerated below. a. Intrinsic motivation is better than extrinsic motivation. b. Goal setting is an important motivational aspect of learning. c. Successful experiences are important motivators. d. Feedback about one’s progress can be an effective motivation.
  • e. Considering learner’s interest is important in classroom learning. f. Reward rather than punishment is a better motivation for learning. g. Meaningful materials and tasks serve as good motivators. h. Success generally increases the level of aspiration and achievement of the learner. i. Teacher’s expectations of the learner’s performance influence the latter’s achievement.
  • 4.4. The learner must be active notThe learner must be active not passive for maximum learning.passive for maximum learning. This principle is adroitlyThis principle is adroitly expressed in the Chinese adage:expressed in the Chinese adage: I hear and I f orget , I see and I remember, I do and I underst and.
  • 5. The learner must repeat or practice what he has learned in order to remember. Thorndike law of exercise states that constant repetition of a response strengthens its connection with the stimulus and disuse of a response weakens it. Educational practices such as drill, review and examination exemplify this principle
  • 6. The learner must put together the parts of a task and perceive it as a meaningful whole. This is an extension of the principle formulated by the Gestalt school of psychology. The principle places emphasis upon the concept that learning is a process of discovering and understanding relationships, and of organizing and finding significance in the sensory experiences aroused by the external situation.
  • 7. The learner must see the significance, meanings, implications, and applications that will make a given experience understandable. (Apperception) 8. The learner must be prepared to respond. A teacher sometimes may encounter situations where learners learn automatically and spontaneously, or learners who are able to perform skills and activities without much apparent effort. These situations can be credited to readiness on the part of the learner. Readiness varies with the different learning tasks and among individuals. Without readiness, much effort, is exerted by the teacher and the learner and this effort may result in little or no learning at all on the part of the learner.
  • 9. The process of problem solving and learning are highly unique and specific. Each individual has his own unique style of learning and solving problems. As individuals become more aware of how they learn and solve problems and become exposed to alternative models used by other individuals, they can modify their personal learning style so that this can be employed more effectively.
  • CONDITIONS WHICH FACILITATECONDITIONS WHICH FACILITATE LEARNINGLEARNING 1. Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere which encourages learners to be active. 2. Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere which promotes and facilitates the individual’s discovery of the personal meaning of ideas. 3. Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere in which different ideas can be discussed but not necessarily accepted.
  • 4. Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere in which consistently recognizes the individual’s right to make mistakes. 5. Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere in which evaluation is a cooperative process. 6. Learning is facilitated in an atmosphere were individuals feel they are respected and accepted.

  • The Sensing-Thinking (ST) or Mastery Learner
  • PREFERS TO LEARN BY:  seeing tangible results  practicing what he has learned  following directions one step at a time  being active rather than passive  knowing exactly what is expected of her, how well the task must be done and why LEARN BEST FROM:  drill  demonstration  practice  hands-on experience
  • The Intuitive-thinking (NT) or understanding Learner
  • PREFERS TO LEARN BY: LEARN BEST FROM:  studying about ideas and how things are related  planning and carrying out a project of his own making and interest  arguing or debating a point based on logical analysis  problem solving that requires collecting, organizing, and evaluating data  lectures  reading  logical discussions and debates
  • The Sensing-feeling (SF) or interpersonal Learner
  • PREFERS TO LEARN BY: LEARN BEST FROM:  studying about things that directly affect people’s lives rather than impersonal facts or theories  receiving personal attention and encouragement from his teachers  being part of a team – collaborating with other students  activities that help her learn and about herself and how she feels about things  group experiences and projects  loving attention Personal expression and personal encounters  role playing

  • I. Goal and Objective Related to Teaching
  • 1. Begin with the end in mind. In the context of teaching, this means that we must begin our lesson with a clearly defined lesson objective, with a clear and specific lesson objective, we will have a sense of direction.
  • 2. Share lesson objective with student. Make known to our students our instructional objective and encourage them to make the lesson objective their own. This lesson objective when share and possessed by our students will become their personal target.
  • 3. Lesson objectives must be in the two or three domains knowledge (cognitive) skills (psychomotor) , and values (affective) A cognitive or skill lesson must always include the affective dimension for wholistic learning. What is most important in this principle is that our lesson is wholistic and complete because it dwells on knowledge and values or on skills and values.
  • 4. Work on significant and relevant lesson objectives. The level of students’ self- motivation all the more increases when our lesson objective is relevant to their daily life.
  • 5. Lesson objective must be aligned with the aims of education as embodied in the Philippine Constitution and other laws and on the vision-mission statements of the educational institution of which you are a part. This means that the aims and goals of education as provided for in our laws filter down to our lesson objectives. We have something to do with the attainment of our broad aims of education. We can also contribute to the realization of our school’s vision-mission statements because our lesson objectives are based on our school’s vision-mission statements.
  • 6. For accountability of learning, lesson objectives must be SMART, i,e., Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Result-oriented and Relevant, Time bound and Terminal When our lesson objective is SMART, it is quite easy to find out at the end of our lesson if we attained our objective or not.
  • 7. Aim at the development of critical and creative thinking. If we want to contribute to the development of critical and creative thinkers, the type of citizens needed to make democracy, then we should include in our scope of questions, high- level, divergent, or open-ended questions.
  • II. Teaching Strategy-Related Principles of Teaching and Learning
  • 1. Learning is an active process This means that we have to actively engage the learners in learning activities if we want them to learn to teach. We have to give our students opportunities to participate in classroom activities. (Learning by doing) What I hear, I forget What I see, I remember What I do, I understand
  • 2. The more senses that are involved in learning, the more and the better the learning. The Contribution of the Senses to Learning This implies that visual aids are more effective than audio aids. But a combination of audio and visual aids is far more effective. Most effective of course is the use of a combination of three or more senses, thus the term “multi-sensory aids. Sight --75% Hearing --13% Touch --6% Taste --3% Smell --3%
  • 3. A non-threatening atmosphere enhances learning. This conducive atmosphere refers not only to the physical condition of the classroom but more so to the psychological climate that prevails in the classroom.
  • 4. Emotion has the power to increase retention and learning We tend to remember and learn more those that strike our hearts.
  • 5. Learning is meaningful when it is connected to students’ everyday life. For meaning, connect your teaching to your students’ everyday life.
  • 6. Good teaching goes beyond recall of information. Most teachings are confined to recall of information and comprehension. Ideally, our teaching should reach the levels of application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
  • 7. An integrated teaching approach is far more effective then teaching isolated bits of information. For effective teaching, it is imperative on our part as teachers to possess a repertoire of teaching and testing strategies and techniques to reach a full range of students with varied learning styles and multiple intelligences.
  • 8. There is no such thing as best teaching method. The best method is the one that works, the one that yields results.
  • Selection and Organization of Content
  • ““There are dull teachers, dullThere are dull teachers, dull textbooks, dull films, but no dulltextbooks, dull films, but no dull subjects.”subjects.”
  • Guiding Principles in the Selection and Organization of Content
  • 1. One guiding principle related to subject matter content is to observe the following qualities in the selection and organization of content: a)Validity – the content is aligned with the goals and objectives of the BEC b) Significance – what we teach should respond to the needs and interests of the learners, hence meaningful and significant.
  • c) Balance – Content includes not only facts but also concepts and values. This includes cognitive, psychomotor and effective elements. d) Self-sufficiency – content fully covers the essentials. Learning is not “mile- wide- and-inch-deep”. The essentials are sufficiently covered and are treated in depth. e) Interests – the teacher considers the interest of the learners, their developmental stages and cultural and ethnic background.
  • f) Utility – will this content be of use to the learners? It is meant not only to be memorized for test and grade purposes. What is learned has a function even after examination are over. g) Feasibility – The content is feasible in the sense that it can be covered within the school year. That is why teachers tend to rush towards the end of the school year, do superficial teaching and contribute to non-mastery of content.
  • 2. At the base of the structure of cognitive subject matter content is facts We can’t do away with facts but be sure to go beyond facts by constructing an increasingly richer and more sophisticated knowledge base and by working out a process of conceptual understanding
  • 3. Subject matter content is an integration of cognitive, skill and affective elements. When we teach facts, concepts principles theories and laws, it necessitates the skill of seeing the relationships among these in order to see meaning. Likewise when our subject matter is focused on the thinking and manipulative skills, out lesson content also has cognitive content. More so with the teaching of values, for values have definitely a cognitive basis. The cognitive lesson may be used as a vehicle in the teaching of skills and values.
