Richmond Solution’s approach
April 13, 2021
Learner-centered, cooperative, and task-based methodologies are action-oriented and focus on how the student learns from scenarios, contexts, projects, or problems. These communicative situations foster a constructive and resolute process which connects the student to real life and the practical application of their knowledge.
Richmond Solution implements action-oriented methodologies as follows:
01. Flipped classroom
- Richmond Solution proposes a flipped classroom to facilitate meaningful learning through work on more complex skills and knowledge-related mental processes.
- When using the flipped classroom model, the teacher asks their students to explore resources and topics prior to class. This means that in class, the focus is on production and the development of higher-order skills.
02. Cooperative learning:
- One of the goals of the Richmond Solution methodology is for children to be able to perform tasks or activities in English in small teams. In these teams, each member has a specific role. Once these tasks have been completed, this collaborative work can be celebrated as a success for all, rather than just for the individual.
03. Thought-based learning
- Through this methodology, Richmond Solution aims to have students develop thought schemes and skills related to English language learning. This methodology also enables them to make good decisions and solve problems effectively.
04. Project-based learning
- Through project-based learning (PBL), the student learns in a guided and sequenced way to give presentations and apply communicative skills through projects. Furthermore, PBL allows the teacher to use differentiated instruction to reach the specific objectives of each competency. PBL also develops 21st-century skills and collaborative learning.
