Social Studies

I can tell everyone has some different ideas as to favorite teaching methods. I was curious about something, so I thought I would throw it out to the group. Do you think that one of these methods should be used the majority of the time and then be supported by others? If so, which one do you think is the most effective? If not, why?

    To which teaching methods are you referring?

  • Social Studies -

    Teaching methods vary with the situation: the lesson, the students, current events going on, and the teacher.

    My experience is that I have favorites, but they change from subject to subject. Prealgebra is quite different from physics.
    My experience is that some lessons work best hands on, others not. Some lessons work best with student groups, some not.

    One has to evaluate oneself, the particular class, and even groupings within classes (classes are not homogenous), the lesson, the time of day, the current events going on, and of course, maintaining a feel for how the lesson is going....sometimes we change in midstream.

    Teaching is not monolithic, and is not a canned program.
