There is much to be learned about improving instruction by examining initiatives within the U.S. that provide educators with the best-practice examples they might need. , which grew out of the Noyce Foundation's Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative, is exemplary as a professional resource for educators passionate about improving students' mathematics learning and performance. This site features tools for educators, problems of the month, classroom videos, Common Core resources, and performance assessment tasks. The Ohio Department of Education developed a (Common Core State Standards) as of June 2010.
Every teacher should have some knowledge on how students learn and be able to connect research to what they do in the classroom. In the , the Deans for Impact (2015) provide a valuable summary of cognitive science research on how learning takes place. In it you'll find cognitive principles and practical implications for the classroom related to six key questions on how students understand new ideas, learn and retain new information, and solve problems; how learning transfers to new situations; what motivates students to learn; and common misconceptions about how students think and learn (About section). Likewise, the Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (2017) in New South Wales, Australia elaborates on research that teachers really need to understand about cognitive load theory: what it is, how the human brain learns, the evidence base for the theory, and implications for teaching. For example, when teaching, you'll learn about the effect of using worked examples with novices and learners who gain expertise, the effect of redundancy (unnecessary information might actually lead to instructional failure), the negative effect of split-attention (processing multiple separate sources of information simultaneously in order to understand the material), and the benefit of using supporting visual and auditory modalities.

I don’t understand when i should present only my opinion and when to present both sides
For example in the above essay the questiom was ” to what extend do you agree?”
But the model answer he gave the point of view but also discussed both advantages and disadvantages.
It is not possible to learn sentences and put them into your essay. The examiner is trained to spot learned phrases and they will not be accepted. To get band score 6, you must have band score 6 English. This is ultimately a language test, you must have the level of English suitable to the score you want to achieve. My recommendation is to improve your level of English so you can write complex sentences without too many errors. Learn ideas to apply but not fixed sentences.
All the best
John Locke is an interesting case in point. He had been requested bya cousin and her husband—possibly in part because of hismedical training—to give advice on the upbringing of their sonand heir; the youngster seems to have troubled his parents, most likelybecause he had learning difficulties. Locke, then in exile in Europe,wrote the parents a series of letters in which alongside sensibleadvice about such matters as the priorities in the education of alanded gentleman, and about making learning fun for the boy, there werea few strange items such as the advice that the boy should wear leakyshoes in winter so that he would be toughened up! The letterseventually were printed in book form under the title Some ThoughtsConcerning Education (1693), and seem to have had enormousinfluence down the ages upon educational practice; after two centuriesthe book had run through some 35 English editions and well over thirtyforeign editions, and it is still in print and is frequently excerptedin books of readings in philosophy of education. In stark contrast,several of Locke's major philosophical writings—theEssay Concerning Human Understanding, and the Letter onToleration—have been overlooked by most educationaltheorists over the centuries, even though they have enormous relevancefor educational philosophy, theory, policy, and practice. It isespecially noteworthy that the former of these books was the foundationfor an approach to psychology—associationism—thatthrived during the nineteenth century. In addition it stimulatedinterest in the processes of child development and human learning;Locke's model of the way in which the “blank tablet”of the human mind became “furnished” with simple ideas thatwere eventually combined or abstracted in various ways to form complexideas suggested to some that it might be fruitful to study thisprocess in the course of development of a young child (Cleverley andPhillips 1986).
With all this in mind, Carole Frederick Steele (2009) would add that teachers need to be adept at improvising, interpreting events in progress, testing hypotheses, demonstrating respect, showing passion for teaching and learning, and helping students understand complexity. Fortunately, she reminded us that "No teacher is likely to excel at every aspect of teaching....What experts attend to and ignore is markedly different from what beginners notice. The growth continuum ranges from initial ignorance (unaware) to comprehension (aware) to competent application (capable) to great expertise (inspired)," paralleling Bloom's taxonomy. "Lack of awareness occurs before Bloom's categories. The awareness stage is a fair match for Bloom's stage of knowledge and understanding. Teachers at the capable stage use application and analysis well. Educators who reach the inspired stage have become skilled at synthesis and evaluation in regard to their thinking about teaching and learning" (Introduction section).
It is important to note, too, that there is a sub-category withinthis domain of literature that is made up of work by philosophers whoare not primarily identified as philosophers of education, and whomight or might not have had much to say directly about education, butwhose philosophical work has been drawn upon by others and applied veryfruitfully to educational issues. (A volume edited by Amelie Rortycontains essays on the education-related thought, or relevance, of manyhistorically important philosophers; significantly the essays are written almost entirely by philosophers rather than by members of thephilosophy of education community. This is both their strength and their weakness. See Rorty 1998.)
Fourth, and in contrast to the group above, there is a type of workthat is traditionally but undeservedly given a prominent place in theannals of philosophy of education, and which thereby generates a greatdeal of confusion and misunderstanding about the field. These are thebooks and reflective essays on educational topics that were written bymainstream philosophers, a number of whom are counted among thegreatest in the history of the discipline. The catch is this: Evengreat philosophers do not always write philosophy! The reflectionsbeing referred to contain little if any philosophical argumentation,and usually they were not intended to be contributions to theliterature on any of the great philosophical questions. Rather, theyexpressed the author's views (or even prejudices) on educationalrather than philosophical problems, and sometimes—as in the caseof Bertrand Russell's rollicking pieces defending progressiveeducational practices—they explicitly were“potboilers” written to make money. (In Russell's case theroyalties were used to support a progressive school he was runningwith his then-current wife.) Locke, Kant, and Hegel also are amongthose who produced work of this genre. (It should be noted thatRussell also made serious contributions to philosophy of education ofthe technical sort discussed below. Cf. Hare 1987.)
Dimensions of Learning (Marzano & Pickering, 1997) is an instructional framework based on five types of thinking, called the dimensions of learning, that are considered essential to student learning and academic performance:
