We are greatly interested in the teaching- learning activities and experiences that learners carry out in the classroom. They include:
Mental activities; Such as asking educational questions, conclusions, etc., while being careful to diversify mental activities to achieve educational objectives. We also are keen to use these activities in all situations of the teaching-learning process.
Physical activities; the learner exerts a muscular or motor effort by experimentation, practice or application.
Activities or applied experiences: they require mental activities and theoretical knowledge. These activities develop the mental, emotional and skill capacities of learners and facilitate them to acquire experiences to be used in their daily lives.
These classroom activities or educational experiences have different forms depending on the criteria that determine their types.
There are many types of classroom activities to be considered when planning the daily teaching process, taking into account the diversification of aspects of experiences or their patterns to be appropriate with the needs of learners and individual differences, including:
1- Introductory activities: The purpose of these activities is to prepare learners psychologically and mentally to deal with the new lesson, taking into account aspects of innovation and suspense. To increase the learners’ desire to learn.
2- Developmental activities: It is the main focus of classroom activities, during which behavioral objectives are translated into educational situations that achieve growth for the learner in his knowledge, conscience, and various basic skills, through his practice of those situations. These activities may be in individuals or groups according to the objective and the nature of the activity.
3- Summative activities: The purpose of these activities is to ensure the achievement of the behavioral objectives of the lesson, and the extent to which learners understand the facts and concepts to observe those who need special follow-up (support for the lack of skills) or (support for the gifted students).
