Issue Date: Oct-2005
Abstract: This report presents preliminary findings of the pedagogical practices in Tamil Language classrooms in Singapore. As part of the Core Research Program at the Centre for Research in Practice and Pedagogy, data was collected from six primary and six secondary schools selected using random stratified sampling based on school achievement. The instruments used in the data gathering procedure were the Singapore Pedagogy Coding Scheme and the Mother Tongue Pull-down Menu. These two instruments were designed to amass an array of information about classroom pedagogical practices. The categories of observations include the social organisation of classrooms, the nature of classroom talk, the level of student engagement, the ethos of the classroom, the manner in which knowledge is classified as well as the nature of classroom activities. Apart from providing the findings for each of these categories of information, the report also discusses the implications of some of these preliminary findings and gives recommendations with the aim of improving Tamil pedagogical practices in Singapore.
