Getting stuck everytime you need to write? Do you have many ideas but can't get it out? Does your sentences confuses your readers? Join our three-day writing workshop where you get to discover what makes a good writing and how to achieve it.

  • Learners will be able to model the “Tell it-Write it-Check it” approach while writing so as to encourage learners to think through what they write and self correct themselves as they write, thus, promoting good writer’s habit.

USE OF DIFFERENT HEURISTIC APPROACHES SYSTEMATICALLY

Date: Mon, 28 May 2018
Time: 9.30am - 12.30pm
Level: P5 - P6 (Standard)
Price: $45
 

Students will be taught how to use different heuristic approaches systematically to understand and solve word problems effectively. The following is the list of approaches that will be introduced during the workshop:

1) Draw models

2) Guess and check

3) Working backwards

4) Use before–after concept

During the workshop, students will be exposed to a problem and will be asked to try it out on their own first. They will then be encouraged to share their ideas on how they approached the problem and how they may or may not have arrived at a solution. The teacher's role is to be a facilitator, to sieve out good practices from the students and to demonstrate how students can approach the problem. Finally, students are given opportunities to put what the strategies they have learned from their teacher and from their classmates into practice.

At the end of the workshop, students will not only be equipped with the knowledge of the different heuristic approaches but also the systematic approach of understanding and solving word problems. With these approaches, the students will be able to manage word problems better than before.

Word problems can often be confusing and frustrating for children. This workshop aims to teach your child a language-based strategy to break down word problems by recognizing the types of statements found within a given word problem, and how to systematically make use of the statements to form a mathematical model or make a plan that would help them make sense of the problem. Through the activities, we also hope to build students’ confidence in problem solving and to help them experience the joy of it.

DYSLEXIA STRENGTHS DECATHLON BY ROD NICOLSON

As we continue to embrace dyslexia, we aim to produce and conduct workshops that focus on the strengths of our students with dyslexia.  The chart above provides an overview of the skill areas that workshops are designed and how the skills that each workshop focuses on can enhance the strength/s of our students with learning differences.  Each of these triads helps promote unconventional thinking among our students thereby helping them overcome their learning differences, by developing their own coping mechanism in their learning and their self confidence.
