In the contemporary classroom, five distinct teaching styles have appeared to have developed as the primary strategies adopted by modern teachers: The Authority Style, The Delegator Style, The Facilitator Style, The Demonstrator Style and The Hybrid style. However, there are non-conventional methods too. If we go by innovative teaching which is being imparted by learning multiples of nine by using fingers as a calculator. It looks quite interesting and grasping.
A Banka-based teacher, Ruby Kumari (29), has changed the traditional method of teaching maths to the students of a school in Bihar.
Going a little farther, a Dutch teacher Debbie Harkins at the Groene Hart (Green Heart) School, teaches biology by putting on a dress displaying complete internal anatomy of the human body. The idea to teach this way to the students by wearing such sort of dress entered her mind only after finding the clothes printed with pictures of internal limbs. The school management granted her permission to go by the fascination.
Such kind of methodologies remains much simpler for few teachers who realise its power and put them into practice. These methodologies are much simpler than one realises after deciphering the Alpha Order. It was also presumed that newer methods are seldom discarded and surprisingly, the parents also begin to think about them.
To describe it that way is probably a bit of an over-simplification, but it is at the centre of nearly every type of practice the students are encouraged to learn. Regardless of the subject, sport, or job, the learners improve what we are taught by actively thinking about the proficiency towards one or more subjects, games or vocations. Citing the instance of a gymnast preparing for a tournament, it is said he continues to stand with his eyes shut while moving his hands through the air as if he mentally practices his routines.
He is not supposed to be physically practising but mentally going through every step, turn, and jump. This, he secures the information needed for his usual routine. This process is called retrieval practice. Along with this, the easier way of teaching also provides an indistinguishable tint.
