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.
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. 
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
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
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.
Testing Means reaching results by using various information with certain mechanisms, which are set up to imitate natural events in artificial environments and to have students take a certain topics and applying them to reach certain aims/objectives. Nature researchers, scientists, and educators
DebateDebate is a type of discussion on a topic in compliance with certain rules and procedures. Debate, is two groups of students in either twos or threes, putting forward points, which are for or against an idea, proposal, point, action or recommendation.  The aim is to discuss topic ideas that
