A Synthesis of Teaching Methods.
Shipley, C. Morton; And Others
An attempt is made in this guide to synthesize the best attributes of the traditional methods of teaching (where subject orientation is primary) and the more progressive methods (where the child as a personality is the central focus). The traditional approach is used in explicating the conventional qualities of a good teacher, methods of lesson planning, assignments and homework, and drill periods. Progressive techniques are utilized to demonstrate unit grouping of pupils (rather than grade grouping), use of modern technology in the classroom (i.e. programed learning and television), teaching for creativity, and teaching for appreciative learning. Other areas examined are teaching and maintaining discipline, development of citizenship skills, use of audiovisual aids, and general classroom management. The synthesis of traditional and progressive methods is believed to help the teacher fulfill her obligations to society and to the child. A subject index is provided. (RP)
