Strand: Teaching and Learning

Strand unit: Pedagogy

Suggestions for use: Placemat: (Page 73)
Placemat can be used to encourage students to share ideas and reach a consensus about a topic or goal. It can be used to activate prior knowledge of a topic among students. It can help students share problem solving techniques, take group notes during a video/oral presentation, to summerise learning after the class or to begin an opening review of a subsequent lesson.
Anticipation Exercise: (Page 35/36)
The anticipation exercise could be utilised to assess students prior knowledge of a topic. This will give the teacher a picture of the students’ awareness of the concepts involved. However it could also be used as an assessment tool after the learning to see if the students have understood the concepts which they were presented with.
Think-Pair-Square-Share (Page 71)
The think-pair-square-share methodology can be used throughout the inquiry process to enable reflection and discussion among the pupils on the stage of the inquiry or the economic knowledge being explored.
