Section 5 – Constructivist Approach
Questions for Reflection and Circle Discussion:
- What are my personal feelings about the Constructivist Approach in education?
- Do I see my students as possessing the building blocks needed for them to construct their own learning? What “blocks” might be missing for some of my students to learn successfully?
- Do I have students in my care who are unable to engage fully with their learning/lessons being taught? What might be the cause or barrier in their individual situation(s)? Do I have any ability to impact positive change?
- Are there student experiences and home situations in my school that might be overlooked as potential learning opportunities? How might I incorporate them?
