Author(s): Neha Gupta
Abstract: This study used an experimental method to examine how Constructivist trained teachers have different teaching pedagogy in relation to the conventional approach teachers. The purpose of this study is to determine to what extent the Constructivist trained teachers were in favour of using more child centred practices in their classroom. This paper will also discuss how the trained constructivist teachers have different or we can say more favourable attitude towards pupils in their classroom teaching. Data was collected using Teaching Attitude Inventory of S.P Ahulwalia. It has been found that the constructivist approach teachers were more in favour of using child centred practices and were pupil centred in their teaching pedagogy, when compared to the Conventional approach teachers.
