Transforming Teaching-Learning To Improve Student Achievement.
Obiakor, Festus E.
This paper examines how the teaching-learning process can be transformed to accurately define good schools where students achieve (and improve) academically, presenting transformation ideas that are encapsulated in a hypothetical ideal school. To transform the teaching-learning process, students must be self-motivated, teachers must be dedicated to excellence, parents must be equal partners, communities must be self-directed, and governments must be involved. There must be a belief that every child can learn. In an ideal school, all students' potential would be maximized to the fullest. Diversity among both students and teachers would be highly valued, and opportunities for growth would be created by well-prepared teachers. The ideal school would have four basic operational dimensions: functioning with a Comprehensive Support Model, becoming a learning community, becoming a place to master the craft of teaching, and fostering a multidimensional teaching-learning process.
