This is a method to use when avoiding to send learners all alone
down the bumpy, muddy path known as challenging text – a road
booby trapped with difficult vocabulary words.
However, this does not mean giving learners a dozen of words to
look up in the dictionary, rather use a fun and interesting manner to
have them know the terms before the lesson – puzzle.
Why this method?
Students lose interest – Arrives them at falling asleep, cause ruckus
Encourage deep learning
Free learners to explore new words and their meanings
Also helps with pronunciation
Help learners becomes comfortable with the language
Climate refers to the average weather
experienced over a long period. The earths
Climate has changed many times in response to
natural causes. Our climate – Spring, Summer,
Autumn and Winter
Climate change is often confused with global
warming and weather, the following clarify their
Climate only changes
over a longer period of
time. Many animals and
plants need one kind of
climate to survive , for
example – Dolphins and
Palm trees need a hot
climate , Polar Bears
and spruce trees need
a cold Climate.
Weather is daily (day to
day) and happens usually
over a small period of
time. For example – sun,
rain, hail, snow, wind,
cloud, fog (haze) and
thunder and lightning.
Knapp B (2000) simply defines it as a recent increase in
the world’s temperature that is believed to be caused by
the increase of certain gases in the atmosphere.
Earth orbital changes
Burning of fossil fuels
Industrial processes (CO2)
Sources of emission (transportation)
Answer true or false to the following:
Climate change is the same as global warming?
Climate change is caused by humans only?
Climate change is a recent phenomena?
Climate consist of 6 season?
Tell me I forget, show and I remember, involve me and I
Ever been interrupted by someone while you are trying to
explain to them by saying ‘just show me’ ?!
Why this method?
Tell- provide learners with key information related to their
learning (facts, concepts, rules, procedures)
Show- Demonstrating examples of the lesson
Do- After examples provision, give your learners opportunity to
do what you have just taught them
Apply- Learners plan out how they will apply their knowledge
in their own environments
In groups of five, learners are expected to make a
presentation of ten minutes, detailing the causes of
climate changes and the benefits of recycling. (20 Marks)
Each individual to present
Prove of the contributors
Use of equipment's if necessary
Presentation should be of a max of 3 minutes
Why this method?
allows students to become active participants in their
exposes students to diverse ideas and approaches
acknowledges and utilises individual students' strengths
through discussion, helps students articulate their ideas,
refine concepts and develop interpersonal and
facilitates a deeper understanding of course content
2. Why is it important for the students to know this?
You control climate change – so this is to inform you to
turn down, switch off, recycle and walk.
6. Other factors that Influence your teaching of this idea?
The science cannot fully be understood – many attempts
to educate the public or kids about climate change have
relied on scare tactics that focus on super storms,
massive floods just to generate fear.
Misconception between terms ( Climate change, global
warming & weather , temperature)
