Chalk Talk: Why Teachers Use Different Instructional Approaches
Different topics and learning experiences require teachers to use a variety of instructional styles. Some topics, those that are fact or skill-based are well suited to direct instruction, a lecture or demonstration from which students comprehend the topic. Discovery or inquiry-based learning is used in situations where students have a strong base of knowledge and should be able to pursue a topic independently. Blended learning has been developed so that students have some of both experiences and may also use e-learning platforms for the direct instruction. Socratic seminars are used in more advanced courses to generate open-ended discussion that expands thoughts and ideas.
