My teaching approach

Introduction

To compare Imagination with knowledge, Imagination is the vital element, it is certainly more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, where as imagination encircles the world.

 

The concepts of approaches should be based on enhancing the power of imagination rather than knowledge, once the imagination awakens the curiosity to search and discover will turn into passion for learning and understanding more.

 

Albert Einstein used his imagination to think there should be something which reins the molecule itself and that's how he started searching for answers and he discovered the existence of atoms within the molecules, or the moment the famous apple met Isaac Newton's head, the pain of that meeting made Isaac to imagine there should be an enormous amount of energy force which pulled that apple so hard towards his head, that is what led him to find gravity.


In today's world, in order to grasp on the technological progression and innovation we have to be keep evolving in order to create a promising world for our future generations.
Creativity obliges innovation and innovation leads the society to create an ultimate balance what we know as progression.


Same goes with education, if creativity is encouraged from early levels to progress into senior level with the same concept we would be able to see great results eventually.

specially for mind of youth which comprehends more and It will lead towards ease in more flexibility, diversity ,growth of ability and thinking capacity.

 

Along the years, many teaching methods have been developed whether to meet the students needs or match a new administration and all of them clamming to be the best way to teach but there were a few really creative methods that are unique and working well at the same time, they are as mentioned below

 

TPR

TPR means Total Physical Response. It is an approach to teaching language based on the idea that if you have to do something physical in response to language, then learning is more meaningful, and you learn faster.

 

Example 
The learners are looking at action verbs. The teacher says 'Jump!' and they jump; the teacher says 'March!' and they march, etc.

In the classroom 
Many teachers integrate TPR with other approaches and techniques rather than using it alone. It is useful, for example, for teaching body vocabulary, prepositions, and language for directions, and may be particularly suitable for low level learners, learning more concrete language.

Disadvantages

TPR is notoriously known as an useful and fun method for Children and young teens, however In higher levels of English where students are mostly happen to be elder it is quite discomforting, adult students usually tend to refuse to join the session.

 

Silent way

The silent way is a methodology of teaching language based on the idea that teachers should be as silent as possible during a class but learners should be encouraged to speak as much as possible. There are three basic principles:

- The learner needs to discover or create
- Learning is made easier by the use of physical objects such as Cuisenaire rods
- Learning is made easier by problem-solving using the target language

 

Example
The teacher shows the learners a small red Cuisenaire rod and a bigger blue one and says ‘The blue one is bigger than the red one'. The learners repeat this. The teacher then substitutes the rods to produce other models, and finally encourages the learners to produce their own comparisons.

In the classroom
Areas of target language where Cuisenaire rods can be useful include word boundaries, contracted forms, prepositions, word order and word stress. Learners can use the rods to first represent and then to manipulate language.

 

Disadvantages

Students waste too much time struggling with a concept that would be easily clarified by the teachers’ direct guide.

It is difficult for teachers to evaluate students’ progress in their learning process.

It is criticized as being too focused on building structure, and misses out on cultural input through the language.

The silence of the teacher can prevent students from hearing many active models of correct usage that they may find useful.

 

 

Suggestopedia

Suggestopedia is one of the teaching methods developed by Bulgarian psychotherapist Georgi Lozanov based on the study of Suggestology. The method has been used in different fields of studies but mostly in the field of foreign language learning. Lozanov claimed that by using this method one can teach languages approximately three to five times as quickly as conventional methods.

The theory applied positive suggestion in teaching when it was developed in the 1970s. However, as improved, it has focused more on “desuggestive learning” and now is often called “desuggestopedia. Suggestopedia is the latest of the six major foreign-language teaching methods known to language teaching experts (the oldest being the grammar translation method.) The name of Suggestopedia is from the words “suggestion” and “pedagogy.”

Example

The lesson of Suggestopedia consisted of three phases at first: deciphering, concert session (memorization séance), and elaboration.

Deciphering: The teacher introduces the grammar and lexis of the content. In most materials the foreign language text is on the left half of the page with a translation on the right half, i.e. meanings are conveyed via the mother tongue not unlike the bilingual method.

Concert session (active and passive): In the active session, the teacher reads the text at a normal speed, sometimes intoning some words, and the students follow. In the passive session, the students relax and listen to the teacher reading the text calmly. Music (" baroque”) is played in the background.

Elaboration: The students finish off what they have learned with dramas, songs, and games.

Then it has developed into four phases as lots of experiments were done: introduction, concert session, elaboration, and production.

 

In the classroom
Physical surroundings and atmosphere in classroom are the vital factors to make sure that "the students feel comfortable and confident", and various techniques, including art and music, are used by the trained teachers.

Introduction: The teacher teaches the material in “a playful manner” instead of analyzing lexis and grammar of the text in a directive manner.

Concert session (active and passive): In the active session, the teacher reads with intoning as selected music is played. Occasionally, the students read the text together with the teacher, and listen only to the music as the teacher pauses in particular moments. The passive session is done more calmly.

Elaboration: The students sing classical songs and play games while “the teacher acts more like a consultant”.

Production: The students spontaneously speak and interact in the target language without interruption or correction

 

Disadvantages

Suggestopedia's method also known to have some disadvantages. First of all is that in terms of the music. Beside the advantage, using music during the learning process also has disadvantages for some people who cannot study in the noisy class. Lozanov explain that using music during the learning process will create the relaxed mind and it is a optimum state of learning. But for the people who cannot study in the noisy class they say that using music the learning process is not effective at all because it will irritate and disturb them. Another disadvantages is that suggestopedia method will be difficult to be practiced in the development country such as Indonesia. As we know that in Indonesia there are at least 30 – 40 students who fill in the one class. The teacher will be difficult to control them one by one. Comparing with european countries which have practiced suggestopedia method for example in France and The Netherlands. There, there are only 10 – 15 students in the one class so that the teacher can control them easily. Beside that, to decorate every single classrooms in the school will need much money. For example, we have to change chairs in the classroom into armchairs. We also have to decrease the students in the classroom, so that we need new classroom for them. So, it is meant that we also have to build new classrooms for the students. For development country like in Indonesia. It can be a burden.

 

Introduction of Videography

 

Videography is an approach using only videos such as movies, tv shows documentaries and Music. Technically students go through every lesson by watching videos and listening to music at times and lessons are fitted among them. This approach is rather a seemless way of learning for the students and focuses on the intrests of the information reciever. The reciever focuses on the lesson, if the lessons are not as pleasing for the reciever the chance of distraction and ultimatley exhaustion is high therefore the progression is much slower. Videography's approach suggests the lessons should be in a very amusing and gleefull way, therefore the lessons become the main intrest of the reciever so we will be able to see much faster progressions.

 

Here we might have not an entirley new approach but an approach that has been considered many times in the past but long forgotten due to the traditional policies in strict educational system, however the future is coming, now we are stepping into a new era, the invade of new generations and ofcourse modernization of any traditional system, here we might be able to bring a forgotten approach back to life. to run this approach an access to a large video library is required but nowdays we are enjoying the vast amount of information online as what internet today actually is in reality, we can have access to any information, movie, song and etc we fancy just by searching in our free virtual library online, download them modify them and turn them into our teaching tools.

Class Syllabus

The classes can be done in different ways, they can be either full classes or just shortend versions, and appear as an activity in a class.

Every class is about 100 Minutes for a full class or 25 min for the activity versions. during a lesson students watch parts of different movies and the graphical lessons among them. classes can extend from 3 to 6 days a week, pending on the intrest of the students.

The teachers role appears a few times per lesson to make sure students have understood the key parts of the story and can (CCQ) concept check to guide the students through the lessons whlist they are discovering the module themselves by watching for example, a movie which is containing lessons.
