TEACHING STRATEGIES

 

/teach.ing/ /strat.eg.ies/

n.noun

Teaching strategies are A combination of instructional methods, learning activities, and materials that actively engage students and appropriately reflect both learning goals and students’ developmental needs. An effective and proactive teacher will employ several teaching strategies, for different types of students. As students process information in different, unique ways, at different paces, a teacher should have various strategies in how they teach individual students.

Teaching strategies vary in styles and methods. One strategy that may be best suited for the brightest students in the classroom, may not effectively work for those who have difficulty processing information. Without an alternative strategy for students, the classroom is susceptible to be split in two: some of the students falling behind or the brightest students being held back. For this reason, a teacher should be prepared to implement varying strategies, best suited for the various types of students they may find in their classroom.
