On Teaching Approaches and Method
Deductive method where the teacher used this method by showing her lesson by posting her lesson in front using manila paper or cartolina.
Inductive method from which the teacher gives an example. Since the subject is Filipino, it’s easier for the students to understand the instructions. Example, the teacher will give a sentence and she will give the answer as well so that the students can understand. The demonstration method, Mrs. Marlyn used this method as she gives an example to the students.
She used this method by letting the students really think of the right answer. The teacher will call a student as a part of their recitation. In the discovery method where the teacher gives a situation and the students should be able to and the problem-solving method just like the answer in number 4, but this is a step by step method. That is the only difference. The project method is that, you will give your students a project. The purpose of the project is to give clue to the students what topic are they going to discuss next meeting.
Constructivist approach is learning experience so the teacher asks the students to give an example sentence. Meta-cognitive is all about thinking about thinking. The teacher asks the students to make an example sentence right? So, the teacher will ask some other student to check their classmates work. For me, problem solving, discovery and problem-solving method should be grouped as one because in own understanding, I think the method has the same approach. What I mean is discovery method is just like problem solving method because when you solve a problem, you discover things.
The most interactive approach is demonstration method because they can have fun while learning. The less interactive for me is project method simply because the child will do the task alone. There’s no interaction with other students except if it’s a group project. Direct method should be used when you know that your students are good enough to understand the lesson without introducing it and just go directly to the lesson itself.
When should the indirect method be used? It depends on the subject matter. If your teaching in a science or a mathematics class, you should use indirect method because in a science class and you have an experiment you should be able to demonstrate first what they are going to do before proceeding to the lesson proper. And if your teaching mathematics, you have to give an example first on how to solve the problem. The methods/approaches that promotes “learning to live together” are discovery and demonstration method because these two methods include social interaction between the students.
If I decide on my teaching approach/method, I will consider demonstration method since I’ll be teaching special kids in the future. Demonstration method because students will have an idea on how to do certain things such as tying their shoe lace or whatsoever. Demonstration method will make it easier for them to learn a thing.
