Three Constructivist Design Models
Step-by-step Lesson Planning with Prompts and Tips
As we saw in the Explanation section, Jacqueline Grennon Brooks and Martin G. Brooks offer five key principles of constructivist learning theory. You can use them to guide curriculum structure and lesson planning.
Five Guiding Principles of Constructivism:
. Pose problems of emerging relevance to students.
. Structure learning around primary concepts.
. Seek and value students' points of view.
. Adapt instruction to address student suppositions.
. Assess student learning in the context of teaching.
These are applicable at all levels and stages of learning. As you work with the ideas of constructivist learning, you will develop personal versions of these principles.
