Teaching Techniques

Teaching Techniques: Revitalizing Methodology focuses on the philosophical basis of teaching methods with insights from current research. Selecting appropriate teaching methods need not be a daunting task. When the teacher understands God's perspective on the ministry of teaching, selection then becomes a process of meeting the lesson's objective through attention to student learning styles, learning domains, and innovative techniques. Both teacher-centered and student-centered methods are explored with refreshing insights.
