+111 Sure-Fire Active Learning Activities That Work In EFL Classes

How Students Learn

Many teachers think that students learn while listening to their explanations in the classroom. Students may store the new information for a short time, but this information will not be stored in their long-term memory until they do something with it. Within this context, active learning is encouraged.

When Active Learning Occurs

Active learning occurs when the teacher uses activities that involve students in doing things and thinking about what they are doing.

During active learning, students do more than just listen: They read, write, discuss, or be engaged in solving problems or most importantly, in such higher-order thinking tasks as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

What About Lecturing?

If I may accept lecturing in teaching sometimes, I always think it must be accompanied by some kind of active learning activities so that students might not be passive listeners but actively involved in the learning process.

How To Achieve Mastery Of Teaching?

As a teacher, if you want your students to go beyond just hearing to mastery of learning and achieving the learning objectives as a result, you must think seriously of achieving mastery of teaching.

You will not achieve mastery of teaching unless you achieve proficiency in the following three things:

  1. Having positive expectations for success.
  2. Managing the classroom effectively.
  3. Designing the lessons for students to master learning.

Although achieving student mastery of learning is a challenge for each teacher, it must be the end that all teachers should try their best to reach.

When Student Learns Perfectly

Student mastery of learning can occur only when teachers become aware of how to get their students involved and engaged (become active) in the learning process.
