TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGY
A variety of teaching and learning approaches is used in the classroom to create a collaborative environment where students will feel safe to share ideas and their challenges. Teachers will use a scaffolding approach which gradually reduces teacher support in order to encourage independence as the ultimate goal.
Constructive assessment and feedback by the teacher is considered necessary and is an intricate part of the teaching approach to help students reach their full potential. During feedback it is important that teachers acknowledge what students have achieved to maintain high levels of motivation.
