After our first lesson on 7 Sept, Jihan, Jeanette, Vincent, Swarna and I had a group discussion on 9 Sept. On that day, we met and each of us were allocated a period of 2 to 3 years to research on. I was to find out more about the Educational Initiatives 1997 to 1999.
Our group met up again yesterday (14 Sept). Using the 'Expert Group', 'Round Robin' and 'Jigsaw' from CL, we managed to piece up all the information we need for the Educational Initiatives 1997 to 2010. From the big picture, we then zoomed into 5 major initiatives to work on. (Since there are 5 of us, each of us will take one and look into the details. We will meet again next week to share our findings.)
It was a very fruitful meeting as we now have a clearer picture of the MOE Initiatives. We also have to bear in mind how these initiatives will impact the teaching and learning of Math.
