1.1 Formal Language (5 marks) Formal language refers to the use of grammatically correct, complete sentences and words that are appropriate to the context or setting. Its main characteristic is the careful selection and usage of words, avoiding slang or colloquialism. An example is any formal documentation, such as a legal contract. Instead of saying "We've got a deal", a formal language will state, "The parties herein agree to the terms stipulated in this contract". 1.2 Teaching Didactics (5 marks) Teaching didactics refers to the principle, methodology, and strategy of teaching. It involves how content is structured, what teaching methods are chosen, and how learning is assessed. It gives scientific support to teaching practices. An example is a teacher breaking a complex lesson into smaller parts and teaching each part sequentially to ensure students are understanding before moving to the next part. Question 2 (10 marks) 2.1 I do agree that one of the most quintessential skills a teacher needs to foster in learners is the ability to listen well. Listening skills indeed assist in effective communication. Two aspects of listening are active listening and critical listening. Active listening involves fully engaging with the speaker, showing interest through nods or verbal affirmations, and then paraphrasing the speaker's words to verify understanding. For instance, when a student restates the teacher's explanations in their own words, it shows active listening. Critical listening, on the other hand, involves analyzing, evaluating, and thinking critically about what is being said. For example, when a teacher gives an explanation, a critically listening student may question the logic, ask for additional evidence, or compare it to alternative theories or explanations. Both these skills not only aids in comprehensive understanding but it also encourages productive discussions and develops higher-order thinking skills.
