Students respond differently to different methods of teaching. Also, the students have their unique way of demonstrating the knowledge acquired and absorbing the information that is imparted. So, to aid this process of demonstrating the knowledge, the teacher has to adopt a technique that assists the students in retaining the information and increasing their understanding. There are many teaching methods for children like questioning. Modeling, demonstrating, collaborating and explaining that have been discussed here. Teaching Methods and Strategies We all know about the importance of higher education, so now let us learn some methods of teaching as well. Here are some of the basic teaching methods for higher education as well as for the middle education. 1. Questioning Testing and questioning are always known to be effective teaching methods due to its interactive nature. The questions are asked by the teacher with an intention to know what the student has learnt from earlier discussions and what it helps in deciding what should be taught further. This can be even vice-verse, students questioning the teachers to clarify the doubts that would enhance their understanding of the subject. The inquisitive instincts of the students evoke them to ask questions and satiate their query. The teacher should encourage this in a positive way so that the student's critical thinking is developed. Testing differs in one aspect from questioning. Test in done in order to know about the previous knowledge and already taught things to the student.

2. Explaining Explaining is one of the very important teaching methods in education. It has taken a form of lectures in teaching methods for higher education where the teacher presents the factual information in a direct and a logical way. Sometimes the experiences can also be shared as a part of knowledge that would work as a source of inspiration for the students. While adopting this method the teacher should give an introduction and a proper summary. Make sure that the information is specific to the audience. The explanation should be accompanied with suitable examples for the better understanding of the students. It is like a discourse on a particular subject or topic that is for the entire class or public. Explaining can be clubbed with the modeling process to be more effective and to have a long-lasting effect on the pupils. 3. Modeling Modeling is a type of visual aid for teaching as well as learning. It is a known fact that human brain absorbs more and understands better when visual aid facilitates explanation. This method works on three criteria - observing, retaining and replicating. The students learn more by observing the things and acquire it by imitating it time and again. This is also known as reinforced behavior. This type of learning has very important role to play in the learning process especially during the childhood, though it can happen in any stage of life. This helps the students to visualize the things and, then hypothesize the solution. 4. Demonstrating With the help of demonstrative teaching methods in education students get an opportunity to explore the various aspects and understand the theory from a different perspective. Demonstration is a step-by-step explanation along with their reasons and significance for the better understanding of the student. It enhances the student's understanding by practically applying the knowledge and sharpens their skills and hence, they become capable of identifying and organizing the subject matter in a more efficient way. Practical experimentation is a very good method used for demonstrating the subject. 5. Collaborating Teamwork is a contemporary form of collaboration. The students are taught to work in a group that makes the instructing easier for the teacher. This method of teaching promotes a sense of mutual responsibility among the students. They learn to put in more effort to research for the topic and apply effective techniques to get the result. This inculcates patience and develops an ability to critically analyze a subject. It gives an opportunity to the students to solve

the problem by a healthy discussion and co-operation. This is what we call 'group discussions' which motivates the students to perform in a team, show leadership skills and enhances the presentation capabilities as well. This is one of the best direct instructional methods. The teaching method for special education is a little different from the teaching methods and theories for others. The education is imparted to these students based on their strengths and weaknesses. The teachers cater to the special needs of the students like modification in the regular teaching program, use of supplementary aids that allows students to participate in the learning process. Different effective teaching strategies are adopted on the basis of the disabilities. Four kinds of provisions are adopted in special education and they are inclusion, mainstream, segregation and exclusion. Read more on: teaching children with disabilities. Apart from these defined methods, nowadays many other teaching methods in education are being adopted to give quality education. The methods like role-play, story or games, seminars, presentations, workshops, conferences, brainstorming, case study, educational trips and modern audio-visual aids like documentary films, computers, internet, etc have been introduced in education. These new methods have increased the pace of learning and understanding. This also enhances the capability of the students to research and logically think for a given problem.

Effective Teaching Methods If you want to know about the effective teaching methods that can help you to better understand and interact with your students, read this article. Teaching is that profession where the success of the teachers of the teacher depends on the ability of the students but there have been such teachers who have made even the worst of students the best of learners. So it is evident the understanding of a subject taught by a teacher depends on the methods of teaching adopted by that teacher. Methods make the material easier to comprehend and assimilate. A teacher would only pay attention towards his methods only when he is completely dedicated towards his profession and if his profession is his passion. There are some effective teaching methods that a teacher if and when follows would get better results from his students in terms of comprehension and reproduction of that topic on pen and paper which we will discuss in this article. Some Effective Teaching Methods The effective methods of teaching that do yield results are as follows:

It is important that the teacher sets goals for himself or herself and also for his or her students so that they aim and work towards that goal and when they fail to achieve to that goal the target they realize it before it is too late and work upon it. It is important that the teacher underlines the key concepts of a lesson or chapter so that the students learn to identify the main ideas that they need to understand and sieve the study material. It is important that the teacher establishes an interactive environment in the classroom so that the students can speak out and the teacher can also understand which concepts have been studied and understood well and which have not been. It is always better to give the students a little of the background of the topic that you are teaching so that they have better understanding. It is also advisable to revise the topic that you did in the previous class since revision makes things easier to remember and recollect.

To make things easier and less time taking you can adopt the method the Questioning to revise the previously done things so that you can also assess their understanding. When teaching small kids it is better to take help of visual aids since pictures and images register in the kind better than words and lessons. So if you are trying to put in facts about a tiger it is better to teach the picture of a tiger and then tell the kids about it. For subjects like geography, physics and chemistry try and show the kids things that you are teaching as far as possible. Take help of maps and pictures so that the knowledge that you are imparting does not seem vague for the students. After you are done with a certain topic divide the class into several groups where in each group there should be a mix of good and average students and grade them on team performance so that the average students copes up with the difficulties with the help of the better student. Besides the entire classroom studies it is imperative to concentrate on the talent that the student has beyond classroom studies. There are some students who cannot assimilate the routine and inhibited classroom academics but on the other hand they respond well to experiments and demonstration.

My Argument
Every teacher has a different education method each other. They have their own opinion or an argument why I take this method up. Absolutely, they was thought why I take this method up, is it compatible with their students, will the students understand the lesson easier than before? Why did I say that? Because the students will understand the lesson depend on an education method that adopted by teacher. The article above is about several education methods used to adopting by the teachers. According it, I argue some of those methods are right in my opinion. But, I dont claim that all of my opinions are exactly right. In this case I just argue my opinion about educational method according these articles. To short my time, I will show you some of those education methods that I agree within: 1. Questioning This method is compatible for all classes, whether is kindergarten, elementary school, junior high school, or senior high school even it university student. By this method, it will be an interactive class. The teacher ask the student a question, and the student will answer by their argue according the question. The students will argues each other to be the correct one. This is training them to be a positive critical in the future. In the end of the question, teacher must explain for the second time in other to understanding his student clearly. The question can divide into three paths: Before entering class, during class and before the class is finish. 2. Explaining Explaining a lesson is the core of education method. By this method teacher can explain clearly a lesson. The teacher can share with the student during his explaining. Explaining a lesson wasnt by the speech only, it can also by visual that suitable with it. Indeed, explaining by visual or object faster understood by the student. Explaining by logic or the fact used to adopt by lecturer in university. Why? Because the student in university need a logical reason to understand what their lecturer mind. But, the children in the kindergarten need an objector visual to understand what the teacher mind. Such as; the teacher explains about an elephant, the children cant understand until the teacher bring or show the elephant picture.

My opinion about explaining is explaining method cant be use with the same method in different lesson and class. But, different lesson and class are different way to explain it. To carry those method as well as possible, I enclose some supporting methods to achieve the good education method according the article above: Before entering the school, the teacher must prepare the lesson and make the goal or aim for the student at day. During preparing a lesson and making an aim for the student, teacher underline the chapter and the important key that make the teacher always remember what is the objective that chapter or lesson. After explaining, teacher should conclude his explaining in the form of summary. Always ask the student the lesson that has explained in the last meeting. Preparing a visual if needed in explaining the lesson. These I can argue according the article about education method above. If there is a false in my opinion, I beg a thousand of pardon, because just these knowledge about education method that I knew and what I was understood in this article.
