Teaching methods

Education has an immense impact on human society. It trains the human mind to think about making a right decision. In other words, man becomes a rational animal when he educated. This quality of social resources of a nation is easily judged by the percentage of its population which is literate. This is to say that education is a necessity if a nation aspires to achieve growth, development, and more importantly to sustain this growth in the future.
I hope that many new methods of teaching will be found out and many new aids will be used for a better education of children. The children instead of being passive listeners have been active participants. They are handing, feeling, planning, creating and learning with newer tools and aids that the subjective has given place to healthy objectivity.
This is 4 teaching methods that are very popular
1 Presentations
Presentation is one of traditional teaching methods, it has been achieved in many school systems for a long time. The most special point of this method is to communicate. The teacher prepares materials or texts and communicates knowledge. Students receive this information by hearing, thinking, understanding, taking notes and memorizing the words of teacher.
2 Group work
Group work gives students an opportunity to practice English. Group work is the best with 2- 5 people. Group work increases the opportunities for all learners to speak English, it allows them to learn from each other, and frees the teacher to monitor individuals and give them feedback.
3 Using games
Games have long been advocated for assisting language learning. Games add interest to what students might not find very interesting. Learning language involves long- term effort. Games provide a context for meaningful communication. Games can involve all the basic language skills, i.e. listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
According to Wright, David and Buck (Games for learning language, 1984): “Language learning is hard work… Effort is required at every moment and must be maintained over a long period of time. Games help and encourage many learners to sustain their interest and work”
4. Role- play
Jim Scrivener (Jim Scrivener, 2005) believed that “In Role- play, learners are usually given some information about a “role”. These are often printed on “role- card”. Learners take a litter preparation time and then meet up with other students to act out small scenes using their own ideas, as well as any ideas and information from role- card”.
Role- play gives learners the possibility of introducing some more bizarre or interesting variations to a discussion. As well as initiating general discussion on issues, role- play can also be set in special contexts, providing a starting language items.
