Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
During the last decade many important work has been done in education system of Afghanistan to change teacher centered approach in to student center. The way of teaching and learning was teacher centered in afghan schools, where the teachers dominate the classroom and students were only listener and receiver of information. These teacher centered methods gradually changed to student's center, where students can talk and express their ideas and take active part in learning process.
This research is about student’s interaction or talking in the classroom. This study is a quantitative study which explores the active participation of students in process of learning in schools of Kapisa province of Afghanistan. The data was collected from (20) schools of three district in kapisa province and also, (40) teachers male and female participated in this work. The tool which I used in this research was questionnaire and structured observation, (40) teachers fill in the questionnaire and (20) of them were observed during in their teaching. In this work I investigated talking in the classroom by considering two criteria (teacher-students interaction and students-students interaction. In interactive teaching teachers stimulate students to prove their ideas by examples, reason and evidences in a friendly environment.
According to the result of the questionnaire most of the teachers claim that they use interactive teaching in their teaching practice and also they mentioned some obstacles to implementation of interactive teaching like, lack of time and increased number of students in a class. According to observation form a few number of students use it, but not in high level. In result theoretically teachers understand that what is interactive teaching and the important role of talking in the classroom, but practically they have problem in its implementations.
