Best Teaching Strategies 2 Modeling Strategies Introduction and Background According to Schoenfeld (1998), the teachers modeling group is used to frame the assumptions of cognitive theory so as to come up with a framework for modeling periods in the teaching process. The researcher further mentions that modeling efforts are dedicated to the development of complex human behavior which is presumed to be very interactive. Allan Schoenfeld adds that it is important to locate the teaching tasks squarely centrally of a number of well-established traditions with a cognitive science approach to the study of thinking and learning. THARBY, (2018), emphasizes on the use of modeling as a tool in solving problems in teaching sessions. Teaching as a problem-solving activity needs analysis on the best approaches to be applied. Hence, modeling strategies are vital for teachers in classes that involve much thinking and solving problems to get answers. As per Siegler, (1991), engaging students as much as possible requires the teacher to give out feedback and suggests frequent chances to participate in their lesson. Thus, engagement tools, like modeling strategies matter. Recent research on the review of teaching practices that raise pupils’ engagement has revealed that modeling strategies increase students’ participation and, hence, enhance their academic performance ( Silberman, 2003). In my opinion, when a teacher uses modeling strategies in teaching, especially in binary classes, it reduces the student's confusion and enhances their understanding. The modeling methods are twofold procedures that involve demonstrating the needed formulas or skills while describing the activities and decisions being made in the whole teaching process. Modeling is an appeal to learners for imitation ( Siegler, et. al (2003). The modeling strategies in binary conversion computer classes of year seven students are vital. This is because, at this stage, students’ cognitive development of how they construct the mental models of the

At this stage of the year seven pupils, their cognitive growth as well as their intelligence is high. Piaget's observations on children cognitive development intrigued him to find out why many children gave wrong answers in questions that exactly needed logical thinking. Piaget's intentions were to develop a process whereby children could develop into persons able to think using certain philosophies. Hence, cognitive growth was regarded as a progression restructuring of the mental processes due to the biological maturing and experience in the environment ( Banks, et.al 2012). The researcher, therefore, came up with schemas - elementary building blocks of the cognitive models which gave the children the ability to represent the world mentally (Piaget and Cook, 1952).
