Applying the CPA approach

Miss Peggy Foo rounded up this module beautifully with the CPA approach that was repeatedly brought up. 

For example, during the Paper Art activity, she introduced to us the “3 What’s”.

1. Basic level: What do you see by using visual to observe and describe. 

2. Higher level of inference: What do you think of the relationship between objects and the ability to reason.

3. Highest level of inference: What do you wonder? The level of inferring increases and builds on my prior knowledge to relate.  Is that Skemp’s theory on relational understanding I wonder…

Lastly, it is important to have differentiated instructions to cater to all children rather than meeting the 60% needs of the bell curve. Instructions can be differentiated by content, by process and by product.
