Ther are some attempts to implement competency based approach. In fact, those attemps date back to 2004. Iam now, as a teacher, I try to work usng this approach even if I know it has some drawbacks in addition to its positive points. Success of students is no longer measured by standarized tests but by their four compentencies

reply to teacherpedro's post #4COMPETENCY BASED APPROACH it not difficult! The thing is that teachers THINK it's difficult because the "suggestion" comes from above, be it the school's directors, or the board of Ed. It's not just teaching the 4 basic skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing. It's about having students USE what they learn in their everyday life, outside of school. Take the knowledge out of the classroom, apply it to solve everyday problems. It's an interesting approach, you just have to have an open mind and be willing to TRY IT...!!! I gave a workshop on this topic a few weeks ago to teachers of my district, if anyone is interested in info I can send it to you, just PM me your email.
Hugs from Mexico!

I am from Québec, Canada
Here in Québec. this approach was very much critisized because teachers and schools were not given the right tools and enough money to do it right.
I have been teaching for many years(25 +++) and they have come up with many different approaches, and I have tried them and YOU KNOW WHAT, I came up with my own. It is to teach, use what works for you and your students. You and your students should be having fun, get them speaking. One way, I get them speaking, is with games; such as boggles, word-up and many, many other fun games. You put them in teams of four or five to play. Just teaching them how to play a game, with the different rules is a lesson in itself.
If you need more ideas, just write to me.

Good day! I'm Vhel, and I'm a secondary teacher here in Philippines, our curriculum is K to 12 program, but still I'm using different type of approach especially I'm handling different types of learners, aside on that our initial classroom size is 60 students per class. My question is what do you think the best approach that I will use in this kind of class. Take note, mostly my students are slow learners. Thanks in advance. I hope you will help me.

reply to mistysierra's post #23Hi Vhel, with that large of a group, I would use a lot of group activities, songs, and storytelling. You will want to engage them so they are paying attention and still having fun. I would pick a theme for each lesson and have a story, song, and group work. Make sure there is a lot of repetition and if they are having fun they will learn fast. Hope that helps! Thanks, L
