    Zone of Proximal Development

    Zone of proximal development or ZPD is a concept that deals with the learning ability of a human. The core idea suggests that a knowledgeable person’s guidance can make a student learn more than their ability level. An individual can only acquire new skills or knowledge through guidance from a learned person. This guidance is required until the individual has practiced, mastered or is able to perform the task on their own.

These assessments usually occur frequently, i.e. after every lesson, daily, weekly or monthly to improve student attainment. A good teacher always ensures that the students understand the concepts and clear any misconceptions. Formative assessments help the teachers to decide whether to reteach an old lesson or move forward to a new one.

    How to give the Perfect Micro-Teach?

    Microteaching originated in 1961 at Stanford University and was used as a demonstration lesson involving students presenting in a small group. It is the practice of teaching to other teachers and peers to get feedback on the strategies and techniques used in teaching a lesson. Most learners who take a teaching qualification will at some point deliver a short lesson to their peer group which allows them to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding. It's easier for the learner to absorb information when microteaching lessons are taught in small sections. The session is entirely focused on the learning taking place. Hence, it is best to plan the session.
