Active Learning as a Strategy in Embracing Diversity in Inclusion Classrooms


  • Matjhabedi E. Mazibuko


Active learning shifts the focus of teaching from what the teacher should bring to learners towards what do you want learners to be able to do with lesson material. Similarly, learners must enter class prepared to use assigned readings and reviewed material from past classes, etc. Not only are learners expected to be up-to-date on lesson material but to have assimilated the material so they can use and build on it. When learners recognise that the teacher’s lesson involves active learning, they will also recognise that they must be active if they are to succeed in the lesson (Doyle, 2011). the teacher consider various modes of instruction, they must keep in mind that learning depends primarily on what the learners do, both in and out of class, rather than what the teacher does. The teacher’s task is to select activities through which learners can master lesson objectives. Lessons, discussions, written exercises, reading exercises, tests, group work, individualized instruction, field trips, observations, experiments, and many other kinds of experiences may be necessary for learners to learn the things the teacher want them to learn.
