TEACHING & LEARNING METHODS
NameComments
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.
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. 
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
Cooperative LearningCooperative Learning is; a kind of learning that is based on students working together for a common purpose. Children with different skills come together in heterogeneous groups and learn by helping each other. Students gain experiences such as becoming aware of the unity within the
