Tales from Places in Town

aim of work shop
Aim of Work-Shop

To consider and explore various urban settings as promoters of inclusive learning. And produce teaching material for school and teacher education; material that comply with different student conditions (language, culture, socio-economic background, gender, temperament, intelligences, physical and mental conditions).

an example of cognitive style
An Example of Cognitive Style

Presmeg (1989) designs a task that exemplifies the hemisphere specialisation; children were asked to solve the following problem:

A dog pursues a fox which is 30 metres from the dog. The dog covers 2 metres in each step; the fox 1 metre. While the fox takes 3 steps, the dog takes 2. What distance does the dog need to cover in order to catch the fox?

strategy 1
Strategy 1

Two children of the same nationality and culture:

-Investigator (I): Read the text to yourself again 

-Darren (D): (after a moment) Fox - covers 1 metre in each step; dog - 2 metres (D thinks aloud while drawing the following diagram)

Fox

Dog

-I: Do you want to tell me what you’re drawing?

-D: (writes calculations on the sheet of paper) Right, for every 4 metres that the dog covers (points to the spot on the diagram while speaking), it wins 1 metre. So the dog wins the 30 metres in 120 metres

strategy 2
Strategy 2

Another pupil (Ashwin) solved the problem as follows:

-A: If the dog takes 2 steps it covers 2 * 2 metres = 4m; if the fox takes 3 steps it covers 3 * 1 metres = 3m; so the dog wins 4 - 3m = 1m. Therefore, the dog wins 30m in 4*30m = 120m.

two learning styles
Two Learning Styles

According to the two strategies of solving problem, Darren is grouped with ’image makers’; Ashwin with the group of ’structured and organised thinkers’   (Presmeg, 1989).

Another grouping would be: when solving mathematical problems, Darren applies a qualitative learning style (visual), and Ashwin makes use of a quantitative style (or sequential).

Cooperative Learning

The so-called ’structures’ in CL might inspire organisation of groupwork:

  • Heterogeneous groups
  • Defining steps in the problem solving process
  • Defining roles and tasks for each member in the group

Designing Questions

Questions may answer themselves ...

  • How to challenge all students?
  • Consider the cognitive taxonomy (Bloom)

goldilocks and the three bears and bloom
Goldilocks and the Three Bears – and Bloom

1. Knowledge

What did Goldilocks do at in the Bears’ house? (list as many events as you remember)

2. Comprehension

Why did Goldilocks prefer Baby bear’s chair?

3. Application

If Goldilocks visited your house, what things would she like, do you think?What things would she have tried?

4. Analysis

Tell the tale about Goldilocks and the three crocodiles

5. Synthesis

How would the tale have been different if Goldilocks had visited the three fish in stead of the three bears?

6. Evaluation

Do you think that what Goldilocks did was right/wrong? Why?

How would you have liked to be there?
