More Than 40 People in a Class...
Achour
It is obvious that a teacher in a class of 40 people will be lost.
Neither the time nor the circumstances are helpful. In such case the teacher should focus on the lesson rather than giving chances to the pupils to do the task themselves.
 

 
Application of Competency to Teaching
Belay Gezahegn, Director, Ethiopia, Member
There are 3 elements of competency:
1. Knowledge
2. Skills
3. Attitudes
A competent employee is believed to have these three elements of competency.
There is a process known as competency modelling which is a huge task.
It usually works for employed workers. For students it requires a little modification.
Example 1: what technical and behavioral competencies are expected from students in mathematics course?
Example 2: One of the skill competencies could be "ability to interpret mathematical theories to practical life".
But it is not enough to identify competencies. We must also label the expected proficiency level from students.
The proficiency level is a competency scale which is normally described as:
1 = Novice
2 = Intermediate
3 = Advanced
4 = Expert
Think about at which level you expect your students to have the skills.
For instance the required proficiency level for ability to interpret theories could be 3 but the actual proficiency level of a student could be 1. There is a competency gap of 2, which implies focus on this student in this area.
