2
If you are using any of the following methods,
its time to change..

1. Teaching through Memorization
  • Accumulation of information is the primary goal
  • What It Advocates New information can just be
    added on to the information the child already has

Do You..
  • Expect your students to learn new information by
    reading from a textbook?
  • Measure learning by your students ability to
    reproduce facts?

Heres What You Can Do Instead

    measure your students understanding of a topic
  • Ensure your students have a broader frame of
    reference in which they can understand new
    information

2. Teaching through the Step-by-Step Process
  • Information is introduced in bits and pieces
  • What It Advocates Children must learn the
    theoretical considerations before they can
    attempt the actual skill

7
Do You..
  • Think preschoolers should practice drawing
    diagonal and horizontal lines before they learn
    to write the letter A?
  • Believe students should be familiar with grammar
    rules before they learn to write essays?

    teacher

    factual knowledge and try to reproduce the same
    in students

10
Do You..
  • Revolve classes around lectures?
  • Set the pace for learning?
  • Expect the entire class to learn at the same pace?
