TEACHING TIPS

WHAT WENT WRONG? OLD "METHODS" AND PAST TIMES

  • I do not know about most of you parents, but the kind of education most of us received was the very basic "here's the book and learn" (the old style of education); many times these materials lacked colours and creativity and the kids considered them straight out boring. 

  • When the parent/ teacher got frustrated - the kid(s) will also get some kind of corporal punishment. 

  • The parents used to be frustrated that their kid(s) are "bad learners", but when it comes to kids'  cartoons, games or play etc. - they know all those rhymes by heart!!! How can it be then? 

  • The reality is that the vast majority of kids are very capable of learning easily, but the methods used are inefficient.


  • Every child has the ability to learn, it is only the parent/ educator who needs to see what teaching style fits the child's learning best. Most children like variety in learning, and some of the following points are just some ideas of methods you could switch among while teaching your kids.

THE FOLLOWING POINTS ARE SUPPOSED TO
HELP THE PARENT/EDUCATOR IMPROVE THEIR TEACHING STYLE:

  •  NOT ALL KIDS LEARN THE SAME WAY!!!

  • SOME KIDS LIKE TO LEARN THROUGH ART

  • OTHERS ARE PRIMARILY VISUAL

  • OTHERS LEARN THROUGH PROJECTS

  • OTHERS ARE MORE AUDITORY

  • SOME KIDS ARE PRIMARILY TACTILE (like to learn through doing)

  • LEARNING IN GROUPS

  • LEARNING INDIVIDUALLY

  • A GOOD USE OF COMPUTER MATERIALS

  • SOME KIDS LIKE DRAWING, DIAGRAMS AND PICTURES

  • USE COLOURS

  • USE INDEX CARDS
