To test the validity of this process, we conducted an experiment with the steps of the process for students through professional training activities in classroom. Thereby, to contribute to train the teaching ability for students of primary education major, help them be able to adapt to the development of the mathematics curriculum soon and teach the knowledge of fractions at primary level better in the near future.

Developing Scientific Working Groups for Universities in Vietnam
Original Research
Teamwork helps to enhance the productivity and efficiency of the work. Therefore, teamwork has been studied in some aspects as: model of development stages, roles of individual and psychology in a group. The scientific working group (SWG) is a science-friendly environment where scientists can exchange expertise, join forces, and work together to reach and settle new problems of science. SWG can attract near-discipline scientists to develop intensively an academic environment, or to attract scientists from different domains to focus their ability to solve together an interdisciplinary problem. Scientists face many difficulties in forming research groups, one of which is the lack of teamwork skills. The paper consists of three parts: an overview of model on development stages, the roles of individual in a research group and psychology in the group; Research directions on SWG and recommendations for Vietnamese universities to develop research teams.

The Development of Critical Thinking for Students in Vietnamese Schools: From Policies to Practices
Original Research
Developing critical thinking for students has recently gained significant attention in global educational discourse and practices, in response to social demands for autonomous citizens in a knowledge-based economy. In Vietnam, the objective of developing critical thinking for students has now become one of the central focuses in the new general educational program required by the government. However, a critical review of literatures on critical thinking, the new general educational program, and practices of teaching and learning in Vietnamese schools, reveals a number of potential hindrances for the changes, including a lack of clear and detailed guidance in the new program regarding critical thinking, teachers’ beliefs and teaching habits, a passive and examination-oriented learning culture, and traditions of hierarchy and face saving. To make teaching for critical thinking reality, there needs to be cooperation and participation from all parties from policy makers to teacher-training universities, local educational departments, schools, families, teachers and students in establishing a clear schedule for the implementation of a social constructivist approach in teaching and learning.

In Vietnam, the traditional teaching practice is having its weaknesses exposed, as it has to face a great knowledge boom, as many global problems are emerging that needs to be in the school curriculum and be taught to children, but not being exclusive to the knowledge and thought process of any individual subject or science. Thus, integrated studies is also one of the crucial orientation necessary for a fundamental, thorough innovation of the education system in Vietnam in the upcoming period. This paper will present the topic of devising integrated theme assignment with a view to develop the ability to apply knowledge in realistic problem solving for students in secondary schools. In order to build the integrated theme assignment, the author based on the scientific reasoning: To overcome the limitation of using the current curriculun as well as to serve the need for innovation in education at the Secondary level in the upcoming period; to develop the ability to apply knowledge to realistic problem solving for the students is the objective of teaching and is also the directive idea in the building of new secondary school curriculum; Divising integrated theme assignments is to serve the purpose of organizing the study in a way that help students develop the ability to apply knowledge to realistic problem solving. Based on its identification and general characteristics such as its suitability, multi-subject and intersubject, reality; we have named the princple in building and modeling the structure of a integrated theme assignment to use as an illustrative example of building integrated theme assignment in the current secondary school curriculum. This study represents the efforts in finding a way to improve the currently teaching quality following the integrative orientation to fit the present context : the curriculum and the learning facilities as well as the quality of teachers, students and the managerial condition of the secondary schools.

An Application of a Three-phase Reading Comprehension Instructional Model in Teaching Language Arts at Vietnamese High Schools
Original Research
The article focuses on investigating the three-phase reading comprehension instructional model (pre-reading, while-reading and post-reading), based on which it will identify how to apply this model to teach reading comprehension in Vietnamese high schools. Before reading, readers need to activate their prior knowledge and experience, determine reading goals and strategies, and build background knowledge. During reading, readers make sense of the text by taking different actions to achieve both decoding and understanding the text simultaneously. Post-reading phase comprises recalling something done before, analyzing text elements in depth, connecting for expanding the topic, and applying what has been learnt in daily life. The three-phase reading comprehension instructional model has been researched and applied successfully to instruct reading. However, in Vietnam, reading comprehension instruction does not really pay attention to guiding students to actively read texts as highlighted in this model. Practicing the three-phase reading comprehension instructional model in Language Arts subject at Vietnamese high schools means, in fact, to guide students to use strategies effectively in line with each phase of reading comprehension process.
