About Course

This course is an introduction to teaching methods used in primary schools. Because you have been a primary school student, you will recognize some of these methods. However, you know them from a student’s perspective rather than from a teacher’s perspective.

Teaching methods are often divided into two broad categories: teacher-centred methods (also called direct instruction) and learner-centred methods (also called indirect instruction or inquiry-based learning).

An effective teacher knows several methods, some teacher-directed and others are learner-directed. From among these methods, a teacher selects the one method or combination of methods most likely to achieve a particular lesson’s objectives with a particular group of students
