Frequency of Applying Different Teaching Strategies and Social Teaching Methods in Primary Schools
Ivic, Sonja
Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n33 p66-71 2016
The question that every modern teacher raises in their daily work is the reflection on selecting teaching strategies and social forms of teaching. Unlike traditional teaching strategies in which knowledge transfer is mainly done by the teacher while the students are passive listeners and recipients of such knowledge, modern teaching strategies enable active student involvement in the teaching process. Thus, student creativity comes first, which is the goal of modern teaching anyway. The main objective of this analysis is to examine which approach the Croatian primary school teachers prefer in order to determine how frequently their classroom methods include traditional or modern teaching strategies. Results of this analysis indicate that traditional teaching strategies still dominate Croatian classrooms, especially primary school ones and they can be seen as an additional motivation to study this problem with the aim of modernizing the teaching process.
