Teaching method

A teaching method comprises the principles and methods used by teachers to enable student learning. These strategies are determined on subject matter to be taught and by the nature of the learner. For a particular teaching method to be appropriate and efficient it has to be in relation with the characteristic of the learner and the type of learning it is supposed to bring about. Suggestions are there to design and selection of teaching methods must take into account not only the nature of the subject matter but how students learn. In today's school the trend is, it is a known fact. This reasoning and original thought enhances creativity; the approaches for teaching can be student centered. In a teacher-centered approach to learning, teachers are the main authority figure in this model. Students are viewed as "empty vessels" whose primary role is to passively receive information with an end goal of testing and assessment, it is the primary role of teachers to pass information onto their students.

In this model and assessment are viewed as two separate entities. Student learning is measured through objectively scored assessments. In Student-Centered Approach to Learning, while teachers are the authority figure in this model and students play an active role in the learning process; the teacher's primary role is to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material. Student learning is measured through both formal and informal forms of assessment, including group projects, student portfolios, class participation. Teaching and assessments are connected. Used teaching methods may include class participation, recitation, memorization, or combinations of these; the most basic teaching method is explanation. Explanation is characterized by its function as "a tool, used by a speaker for understanding or'giving a sense' to the object of communication, of a debate, or a discussion... The role of an explanation is to make clearer the meaning of an object maintaining formally the necessary distance between the object of the action or study and the tools.

In the learning/teaching process, explanation is a tool used by both and students. Its goal is to manifest comprehension. Traditionally, explanation belongs to monological teaching methods where the information is transmitted from the teacher to the students. Skalková, 1999, says that in practice, individual forms of explanation percolate. In this perspective, explanation is seen as the task fulfilled by the teacher with students passively receiving what is presented. Collecting feedback on students' perceptions of whether explanations are identified whether students feel particular teaching assisted them in understanding the subject matter. Without student understanding, no explanation can be said to be clear We see explanation in a much broader sense: Communication in school is a mutual interchange of information among teachers and students and students during the educational process, i.e. students have an active role in the whole process. Using explanation in a mathematics classroom is a normal procedure.

Predominantly explanation is seen as a tool for describing relevant phenomena, developing students' logical thinking, guiding students by inductive judgement to generalising. It leads to clarifying interrelations and justifying. Although explanation is not explicitly studied in literature, it is present in the background of most papers dealing with communication and reasoning. "Good teaching is good explanation". This quotation reflects the belief. According to Behr, the art of explaining - the ability to provide understanding to others - is the central activity of teaching. Therefore, to achieve the goal of teaching, the teacher must adopt effective teaching methods that can lead to learners understanding the subject being taught. Being the most used teaching method, explanation integrates well in all methods of instruction, such as discussions, practical lessons and tutorials. Therefore, if used properly, this teaching method can develop logical operations: induction, comparison, analysis and analogy.

The main objective of explanation in teaching is to enable the learners to take intelligent interest in the lesson, to grasp the purpose of what is being done, to develop their own insight and understanding of how to do it. In addition, with specific reference to technology education, explanation is used in classroom teaching to provide students with an understanding of the complex and interrelated nature of technology, technical, procedural and social; this involves the ability by the teacher to use explanation in order to communicate information to students. From the standpoint of technology education, explanation in teaching is an intentional activity, which represents the discovery of truth, based on concrete deductive arguments. Explanation as it pertains to teaching can be considered as an attempt to provide understanding of a problem to others. Most formal definitions characterize explanation as a statement that makes something comprehensible by describing the rele
