This means that the school is dividing the students into two groups and offering classes in both the morning and afternoon to accommodate more students. This helps to reduce the number of students in each class, allowing for a better learning environment and more individual attention from teachers.

    Teacher Nenita discourages her students to watch TV excessively. The average student spends about twenty-four hours watching television in a week. According to research, how is learning affected by extensive TV viewing?

    • A.

      Short attention span

    • B.

      Enhanced creativity

    • C.

      Improved thinking skills

    • D.

      Improved communication skills

    Correct Answer
    A. Short attention span
    Explanation
    Extensive TV viewing can lead to a short attention span. Research has shown that spending excessive time watching television can negatively impact a person's ability to concentrate and focus on tasks. This is because television often involves quick scene changes, fast-paced storytelling, and frequent interruptions from commercials, which can train the brain to seek constant stimulation and make it harder to sustain attention for longer periods of time. Therefore, it is understandable why Teacher Nenita discourages her students from watching TV excessively, as it can hinder their learning abilities.

This theory suggests that individuals have different preferences and styles of learning, such as visual, auditory, or kinesthetic, and that tailoring instruction to match these preferences can enhance learning outcomes. Therefore, it emphasizes the importance of understanding and accommodating individual differences in learning styles to optimize educational experiences.

    • A.

      Open communication among school head, teachers, parents, and students

    • B.

      Student-centered learning activities

    • C.

      Innovations in enhancing learning for all types of learners

An engaging learning environment encourages open communication among school head, teachers, parents, and students to foster collaboration and understanding. It also promotes student-centered learning activities, where students take an active role in their education. Additionally, an engaging learning environment embraces innovations in enhancing learning for all types of learners, ensuring that diverse needs are met. However, centralized governance refers to a top-down decision-making structure, which may limit autonomy and hinder the flexibility needed for an engaging learning environment.

      Panel discussion

    Correct Answer
    D. Panel discussion
    Explanation
    A panel discussion would be the most appropriate technique for Mr. Milan to develop a view of capital punishment from different perspectives. In a panel discussion, multiple experts or individuals with different viewpoints on the topic can engage in a conversation and share their thoughts, arguments, and experiences. This allows for a comprehensive exploration of the pros and cons of capital punishment, providing Mr. Milan with a well-rounded understanding of the topic.

    Correct Answer
    A. Concepts, patterns and abstractions
    Explanation
    Direct instruction is a teaching method that involves explicitly teaching facts, rules, and actions. It is a straightforward and structured approach to instruction. On the other hand, indirect instruction is a teaching method that focuses on developing students' understanding of concepts, patterns, and abstractions. It encourages critical thinking, problem-solving, and inquiry-based learning. Therefore, the correct answer is "concepts, patterns, and abstractions" as indirect instruction is specifically designed to teach these higher-order thinking skills.
