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.
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
ProjectProject-based learning is a learning way which leads students to deal with interesting problems and to create extraordinary products at the end of this. It allows students to use their creativity and it requires them to look at events perceptively.
Observation Although we generally get information related to the nature through observations, the Observation method can also be used for other situations and under other conditions. We try to reach certain generalizations by thinking about our findings which we gather from our observations.
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
