We are inviting teachers into our flipped classroom again this year.
We start teaching our Secondary 3 Express and Normal Academic (Out of Stream) classess our descriptive writing strategy from day two of school this term and have now move on to the second cycle of our teaching approach. In the second cycle we utilise flipped classroom pedagogy.
If you remember we shared in a post last year how we teach descriptive writing. We adopts a back and forth approach between (a) explicitly focused on illustrating the different elements in the technique as well as (b) monitor and provide feedback of student’s demonstration of learning. This we carry out over three cycles. To know what the cycles are about, please read our post here.
If you are an educator and would like to observe our flipped classroom for descriptive writing, do drop us an email or sms and we will provide you the padlet link.
We engage our Secondary 3 Express and Normal Academic (Out of Stream) students to utilize their end of the year holidays well so that they will have a head start when school reopens. These students barely have five months before they sit for their Malay Language O Level Examinations next year. We thought of sharing this with you should it benefit you as well.
We are pleased to announce of an upcoming workshop for teachers above. In the workshop we will discuss the literary moves in every paragraph of our signature descriptive writing strategy. In addition, we will demonstrate the three-pronged pedagogical approach that we employ when teaching the strategy to our upper secondary classes.
The workshop is primarily organised for teachers who use our books Contoh Karangan Untuk Persiapan Peringkat N & O when teaching our writing strategy. Participants who are selected for the workshop will enjoy better clarity of our strategy and how best to use our resources both the books and videos/worksheets that we provide via the password protected spaces in our website.
We will also be addressing any query regarding our narrative and expository writing strategies during the Q&A session. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
Please register early via https://tinyurl.com/registermepls. The maximum number of places is 30. We will close the registration once we have reached this number or by Mon 28 Oct 2019, whichever is earlier. We will inform you via e-mail at least a week before the workshop if you are selected for the workshop.
We look forward to see you at the workshop. Cheers : )
In this video, two students shared how we taught descriptive writing using flipped classroom approach, and how they have benefited from it. We have submitted a proposal to the Academy of Singapore Teachers (AST) to share our teaching strategy with fellow teachers. We are hopeful to be given an opportunity to share at AST again next year.
