Five Standards of Pedagogy in Education

by Akash Sharma Akash Sharma
Pedagogy is simply the method of teaching that includes teaching style, feedback, and assessment encompassing the teacher theory. Pedagogy of teaching refers to the methods used by teachers in delivering the content of the curriculum to the students in a classroom. To be precise, there are five standards to the pedagogy in Education which teachers in the best schools in India are adapting to develop effective teaching in classrooms. Students in top schools in Delhi and other cities can also know about the standards and self-check their education in the school they are enrolled in.   

Joint Productive Activity

Teaching is generally providing assistance and joint productive activity (JPA) helps in improving learning and teaching. This is typically human, across cultures, and hard-wired. In typical schools, there is little JPA which helps in improving experiences and students don’t have any common context to develop an understanding with one another or with the teacher. JPA helps in creating this common context and is helpful if the teachers and students are of different background. This also allows the highest academic achievement through formal and scientific ideas to solve problems. 

Language Development

All educational activities should concentrate on developing competency in the language of instruction which is fundamental for the success of any school. At all levels of schooling, language development should be given importance through conversations but not decontextualized rules. Both reading and writing must be taught specifically and in an integrated approach. It also applies to the specialized language genres that are necessary for the study of specific disciplines. 


Students’ knowledge and skills are used in the contextualization as a founding stone for new knowledge. It implies pride and confidence among students. Students who are at risk must be provided experiences by schools that teach them the concepts relating to the everyday world. Through this, connections strengthen and students engage more in the learning activities. Collaborations with parents can explore new patterns of conversation, participation, knowledge, and interests. 

Challenging Activities

Students at risk of failure are neglected and are forgiven assessments and challenges as the tools are inadequate. This weakens standards and feedback which impedes achievement. Those students require attentive instructions that are challenging and require thinking and analysis. Careful design of tasks is necessary to work with a cognitively challenging curriculum. There should be no place for overwhelming or drill and kill exercises.

Instructional Conversation

Thinking and the abilities to express and exchange ideas are best taught through questioning and sharing. Dialogue is important in the Instructional Conversation (IC). The teacher listens and guesses intended meaning so that he could provide proper assistance and put efforts in a classroom. This supportive and collaborative event that builds a sense of community and is an ideal setting for language development allows sensitive contextualization and stimulates cognitive challenges.
