Rationale for the use of Vitamindz Techniques in answering open-ended questions
Updated: Mar 1, 2020
It is often tough to get your child to exercise patience when they are doing school examination papers or even homework given by the school. This is especially so for questions in the open-ended section.
There is a tendency for them to speed read and rush so as to complete their answers and finish the paper in the shortest possible time.
What ensues is often the missing out of relevant scientific concept(s), phrase(s) and/or words in their answers that cost them most of their marks.
Parents become frustrated too and tire out from the constant reminders for them to slow down and not rush. Unfortunately, most of the time, these reminders are often turned on deaf ears.
But, why is this reminder important?
If your child is able to pause for just enough time, he/she will be able to trigger his/her critical thinking skills; a skill set integral to the using of relevant scientific concept(s), phrase(s) and/or words in his/her answers so as to score and ace the open-ended section.
So, how do we ensure that critical thinking skills can be activated each time your child attempts school examination papers?
This is where your child has to apply unique answering techniques taught by Vitamindz Education each time he/she is attempting any questions in the open-ended section.
When he/she does that, he/she is creating a window of opportunity for him/her to pause for just enough time. And this critical 'MOMENT of PAUSE' is just what we need for your child to trigger his/her critical thinking skills!
