Before I start my final paper I would like to first take a minute and say that a lot of this class was review of different courses I have already taken. There are also different areas of the course that I am very familiar with because of personal experiences. However, there were a few areas that were very new to me and honestly helped me understand pervious classes. With that being said I with first talk about the teaching or instructional methods.
. Research on the “teaching methods” or “instructional methods” result thousands of explanations of accomplishments – these are called methods. Sometimes they are also referred to as strategies or techniques, and there is no doubt that there are a good range of recommendations for activities in teaching techniques to use. But for our study with this program, we choose to explain the terms prior to seeing other characteristics. This is because we can make practical decisions in daily teaching routine.
As far as, the method, technique and the strategy are concerned in the teaching, there are a number of different sub-types of each of them. Below each description of the subcategories I also included a cart of some kind to show exactly how these methods would look like in a classroom setting. I used the illustration as a simpler explanation to each area and were guides to help me describe them.
The first, the method can be defined as; “A method is a description of the way that information or a behavior is carried forward or consolidated during the instructional process.” Teaching methods are further classified as; 1) Lecture – no interaction between teacher and class 2) Interactive Lecture – teacher centered interaction 3) Group Work – group centered interaction.
