1. Effective Teaching: Strategies & Methods
In this lesson, we'll explore the characteristics and strategies of effective teaching. We'll also look at some methods used by teachers, such as case studies and role playing, that are used to encourage student learning.
2. Comparing Learning Goals & Learning Objectives
Learning goals and learning objectives are often confused. Though similar, each is distinct with its own place in education. This lesson compares the two and discusses how to define them to help students succeed in the classroom.
3. Instructional Strategies: Hands-On, Interactive, Expository & Collaborative
In this lesson, we will use the fictional Academy of Magic to illustrate four types of instructional strategies that teachers use in the classroom: expository instruction, interactive instruction, hands-on instruction and collaborative instruction.
4. Direct Instruction Teaching Method: Definition, Examples & Strategies
Learn about direct instruction and how educators use it effectively in their classrooms. Explore strategies for using direct instruction, including what types of information and subjects it is best suited for.
5. Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT): Theory, Research & Strategies
A person's culture can impact their approach to education and the way they learn. In this lesson, we'll examine culturally responsive teaching, a teaching method that takes into account students' cultures to help them succeed.
6. Characteristics of Learning Styles
Some of us learn by seeing, others learn by doing, and some even learn by listening. This lesson provides an overview of learning styles, including characteristics of each type of learner.
7. Goal Orientation Theory: How Goals Affect Student Motivation & Behavior
What academic goals do you set for yourself? Are you driven by interest in the academic discipline or by extrinsic factors, such as receiving a higher salary because you have a degree? You may be driven by both. This lesson will explore goals and how they affect student motivation and behavior.
8. Technology in the Classroom: Advantages & Disadvantages
Teachers in today's schools need to be aware of the uses of educational technology. This lesson explains both the advantages and disadvantages of using technology in the classroom.
