“Teachers who emphasize task goals create an environment where mistakes can be made and true learning can occur” (Forrest, 2015). This environment, the author says, is important to the development of literacy skills in students because it encourages them to develop effective learning strategies. Forrest believes that as teachers continue to place emphasis on learning rather than performances, adolescents will begin to learn through inquiry. Inquiry-based learning is geared with a student-centered approach, where teachers use the scaffold. . as well.
In my opinion, everyone that is interested in a career in the education field needs to have a copy of this article to read and gain insight from about techniques that should be used to increase the likelihood that students will learn and develop good habits for self-regulation. I say this because the article outlines numerous ways to engage students and equip them with the tools necessary to stay motivated as they discover new things. I believe that as educators, we should all make it a priority to keep students engaged and motivated to accomplish their goals. It is my firm belief that in order to meet the different needs of the students and produce students that are competent in reading, writing, listening, and speaking, teachers should have multiple methods of presenting information to engage adolescents in order to help them to understand its relevance.
