TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
LecturingLecturing is one of the methods that come first, where the teacher is in the center. It is a method where the teacher actively describes topics and the students are passive listeners. With this method, lesson proceeds in the form of report, description and explanation.
DebateDepending on the situation, debate is a tool that allows all students, or a specific portion of the class to participate in the lesson. In this method, members of the group discuss a topic by addressing the various points of view and discuss alternative opinions about problem-solving.
DemonstrationIn this method the teacher demonstrates, an experiment, test, in front of the class. And then assists students to do so too. Students learn not only by just by looking and watching, but also by taking part and participating. This method is usually applied when teaching skills.
Case Study Case studies require students to actively participate while using an analytical perspective to think about real and problematic events. The problematic event may be real or very close to real life. Student(s) working on the documents that include the necessary data and descriptions of the
Problem SolvingThe name given to any doubt or ambiguity that arises is, a problem. Problems which usually have a role in human life, that have preventing or annoying aspects are solved by considering the stages of scientific methods. (a) Problems are determined. (b) The problem is identified. 
PerformanceIn this method, the teacher performs activities such as experiments and demonstrations in front of the class, students try to learn by looking and watching. This method is usually applied where there are limited facilities and in dealing with dangerous experimental situations.
Questions –AnswersThe different types of Questions used (associative, differential, assessment, requesting information, motivating, and brainstorming) although students get in to more active positions during the process; the method is teacher-centered. If possible Questions, that serve a purpose and
