A good way to make provisions for these factors is to build in variety as an active ingredient during class activities. The KBSR, however, assigns a completely different role to the classroom teacher, one that is less awesome, but much more demanding. If nobody is able to get the right answer, the group that has thought of the animal gets five marks. Given below is a list of suggested activities: However, it appears that that this source of teaching engkish will soon be made inaccessible to them because the Education Ministry has issued a directive that bans the use of workbooks in the KBSR classroom.

Ensure that the list is sufficiently comprehensive to enable various types of categorization. The idea can also be illustrated by using skill She must be able to diagnose the syl,abus learning needs of the students and cater to these.

For example, in order to acquire skill 5. Comprehensive, in-service training should be provided for teachers, with special focus on the creation of activities for the KBSR.

What has happened in reality however is that the KBSR has spawned a proliferation of a new order of materials – mainly workbooks, some readers, and a few texts and kits. Some of the above recommendations may be difficult to implement, but if the KBSR is to succeed, they have to be given serious attention as the system is heavily dependent on the role of the teacher. The former emphasizes the basic communication skills, that is, reading, writing and arithmetic.

Endnotes For purposes of convenience, the student will be referred to as “he” and the teacher as “she”. She should, however, not forget his extremely short attention span. Paired or group activity is one of the best means of exploiting both the approaches mentioned above.

Once students have grasped the idea, they should be allowed to formulate their own clues. The planners of the KBSR had originally forbidden the use of textbooks in the classroom. At this point, it is important to note that the limitations under which she has been working are still very much in force. These skills can be approached in the following manner.

It is important that the learner realizes the relevance of what he is learning; whatever he has learnt should play a meaningful role in his life, and help him attain the goals that he has set for himself. For example, if the final goal, or terminal skill is “to group words according to categories” KBSR Explain that food can be grouped categorized in many ways.

This is mainly because of an impractical teacher-pupil ratio 1: The task lends itself easily to structured learning, or learning sjllabus stages, as the output of one task actually becomes the input for another.

Parents should be educated on the aims, principles and procedures of the KBSR so that there can be more effective teacher-parent-pupil rapport. The students would have to ask each other questions about personal details Wh- questions such engljsh “When is your birthday?
