Teaching Methods

Schools emphasize different approaches to teaching. At one end of the spectrum is teacher-directed instruction in which teachers are the experts and build children’s skills through lectures, reading, and demonstrations. At the other end of the spectrum, the teacher is a coach emphasizing self-discovery by providing students with the appropriate goals, materials and some direction that allows children to learn for themselves. Of course, there are a number of schools which incorporate both of these techniques. Depending on your child’s motivational and learning styles, one approach may be more preferable than the other.
