GAMES VS. CONVENTIONAL INSTRUCTION

“One of the major advantages of games over other forms of instruction is their motivational property. Boring problem sets and drills in conventional instruction can become addictive puzzles in the context of a game.”

                                                                                                                                                      Henry M. Halff

“Rather than thinking about existing classroom activities and figuring out how we can somehow wrap a game around it, we need to think out of the box about ways that we can create integrated learning scenarios using game structures, that then fit somewhere within the teacher’s curriculum for the day.”

Trends in Data Driven Instruction

Data driven instruction has been classified as having the ability to analyze student’s knowledge and respond accordingly. It has been popularized since 2002 with the enactment of the No Child Left Behind Act. Recent studies have shown that this instructional model helps assess student learning needs and improve instruction which helps drive school accountability

True Response to Intervention

Science misconceptions are often based on student preconceptions. It is therefore, important to begin each lesson by assessing prior knowledge and preconceptions. Conceptual growth can occur when the two are connected.
