This paper approves that authoritarian teaching style proves to be toxic for the diverse learners as challenges are not handled appropriately and objectives fail to be met. That is why I intend to develop a learning activity for my instructional setting that would adhere to the learner-centered approach. I will use the learner-centered instruction strategy of problem-based thinking to serve as the backbone of my learning activity devised for the 9th graders in custody. Problem-based learning challenges the students to work in team so that everyone develops the ability to relate with people and social anxiety could be reduced. A learning activity in which puzzling questions are directed at the learners in the hope that they collaborate with one another energetically to solve different dilemmas would suit my instructional setting the most.
This paper makes a conclusion that In response to this type of learning activity, my students will learn to enjoy the benefits of increased cooperation and find answers to certain problems they might come across during the learning process by themselves. There will be heightened curiosity to find answers, increased mental stimulation, and strengthened academic interest to participate. All these features form highly important elements of problem-based learning. Students feel more engaged in the classroom and remain more interested during the lectures when presented with some effective problem-based learning questions which should be preferably puzzling in nature. ...Show more
