Since he believes in the learner-centered approach, he actively engages his learners to construct new ideas or concepts based on their current/past knowledge.

Pupils will be evaluated using word problems based on their authentic and real-world environment. 3. Prior knowledge 4. Learning 5. New knowledge 6. Summary 7. The End
