Le Faasoa Method
'Le Faasoa' is a Samoan term meaning 'the sharing'. I am using this term to define an approach that could be adopted for teaching in classroom settings. The concept may also be applied to actual practical experience between supervising coodinators and learners.
In a typical classroom scenario, often the teacher seen talking and students listening. The simple reason is because the teacher has to teach the curriculum content guided by hours of contact per subject schedule. Relating to this scenario, a common behavior observed in students is to sit and listen quietly. Sometimes if not many times, the teacher finds it difficult to receive students immedicate feedback.
In Le Faasoa Method, an immediate feedback from the student is encouraged just by the way teaching is conducted. This method will not change the content of curriculum to be delivered but focuses on a slightly different approach used to deliver the content of curriculum.
One likes to think that it is enhancing to set a scene where you wish to start working with your group in an equal mindset.
