We might think of ways that vary with our styles in giving the best education all our students deserve. Different strategies in teaching and learning cater both teacher and student-centered activities. Below are the following methodologies that will refresh an educator’s knowledge:
- Inductive Method of teaching starts from specific to general mode of the lesson. Clues are delivered first before tackling the general title of the day’s subject. Inductive method is mostly applicable in developing higher order thinking skills.
- Deductive Method is the reverse of the former. It begins with general concept before letting the students generate examples. For instance, after having taught about the Subject-Verb Agreement, an English teacher asked her students to construct example sentences applying the rules.
- Peer tutoring is most effective in replacing re-teaching process. It is more motivating when students are divided into pairs (consisting of higher and lower achievers in a heterogeneous classroom) and given the opportunity to let a student teach his or her own classmate. It raises responsibility.
- Reflective teaching strategy is more of a teacher’s activity, but it is also helpful in integrating the educator’s learned experiences in the lessons that are delivered. Both cognitive and affective domains of learning are being developed.
- The project method enhances the students’ abilities in problem solving and investigatory techniques. This is not a simple task where the learners have to fulfill their incomplete requirements to be accomplished; rather they are deployed in the community to study various societal issues.
- A demonstration technique feeds the learners eyes by watching the teacher perform an experiment or a cooking course. Afterwards, they are tasked to do the same. It is somehow mimicry of the procedure, but it raises the students’ capability in following instructions as they demonstrate the competencies imparted to them.
- The panel discussion lets the students express their opinions over a certain issue. It enhances their reasoning abilities and makes them able to accept and understand other people’s points of view.
- The discovery approach is a self-regulated learning technique connected to the project method. It sounds like a researching for solutions to a given problem. In addition, it leads someone to unlock a clue that is new to the learning process.
These are only some of the self-regulated learning styles that may be executed in front of the whole class. But no one should forget that without a teacher or a learner, all is useless.
