Importance of Set Induction
I think set induction is a very important stage in opening the correct schemata and getting the students interest. A poor and outdated strategy might be boring to our students; in contrast, an attractive and interesting strategy will help us to get our student attention easily. We are now in our fourth semester, we have learned different types of skills or strategies that we can use in our micro teaching or simulated teaching for the set induction stage. For example, playing a song, telling a story, write the main topic on the board and ask students to think about the topic, playing game, or let them watch a short animation flash.
In the previous simulated teaching, I feel bored about some of the set induction, but I think some are very interesting that I can learn from them. I think getting student to move around can consider more interesting strategy. I remember one of my course mate set induction clearly. Min Hui asked student to play games in her set induction, many people like to play. She got four volunteers. She is also encourages the students to join the games by giving out present to the winner, I think this is also a strategies that I can use in the future because the people who plays game always expecting some reward. Hezelynn is the winner in her game, she was happy showing her reward to others. The whole activity not only involved the few people in front but the whole class was excited.
