By the end of First round of CASW

I have been the presenter for 2 presentations and participant for 6 presentation of CASW from January - till date. In every session during the participant discussion I found that the kind of strategies given by the participant is repetitive or it is some how related to his/her own field of expertise.
For instance
- when I give suggest some strategies they were related to technology most of the time.
- Raji's suggests strategies that works for a child with learning difficulty.
- Srini strategies are based on class room management, assessment.
- maheshwaran’s strategies were related to “Key questions”.
- Neela give importance to formative assessment, Motivation and learning patterns.
-Mr.Amarnathan's strategies are related to articles, journal writing.
-Mahua strategies were based on Motivation and so on.......

  • i guess we can not only bring our backgrounds with us.... we also have to learn to leave them behind----

  • Keen observations, Anitha. Thanks for sharing.

    I guess every teacher brings their beliefs and values into the CASW sessions (just as they do to their classrooms). Hopefully every CASW participant is also listening to others' suggestions as well and expanding their horizons and "strategy" toolkit.

  • Anitha, I would further encourage all the PPSEites to think brain based learning. Are the strategies based on any of the processes explained in growing those dendrites and making new connections? Maybe a scan of the sheets with lists that you all drew up after the brain based video - viewing would help to increase the bank of strategies and focus on facilitating cognition rather than behaviour alone.

  • We can bring our beliefs and philosophies with us but we also need to learn from others and how it can work for us. We need to always keep in mind the objective of the meetings- which is to enrich our teaching practice by making it diverse, varied and yet specific for the particular lesson we may be teaching at that time.
