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.
Cooperative LearningCooperative Learning is; a kind of learning that is based on the students working together for a common purpose. Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups to learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity
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
Brainstorming Brainstorming is a group work process that has been regulated to reach solutions for a problem without limitations or evaluation. The purpose of brainstorming is to make it easier for students to express themselves and to generate ideas. This technique is used as a high-level discussion
