While some experts look to the classroom members as active teachers for the class or all the class is the teacher, Glover et al (2007) supports having a holistic view of the classroom where the teacher is the centre but also seeks to promote the learners’ level of participation through multiple intelligences and opportunities to explore contact with the teacher’s presentation as the focal point and knowledge
These include goal setting, organizational skills, time management, and strategies to learn new things. They are precursors to learning, skills or ability sets that are important for students to learn any content area knowledge. These are often discussed in the context of executive functions.

In addition, the writer wants to fulfill her curiosity about how significant the teacher switches her speech styles in the two main periods on the movie. 1.4 Significance of the Study By doing this analysis, the writer hopes that the findings would be very beneficial for teachers to evaluate the speech styles that they have been using. Furthermore, hopefully, this study could help teachers to improve their speech styles used in the classroom. On the other words, teachers will be aware of the importance of adjusting the speech styles to the target learner needs.
In the most general sense, it usually means encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to create more knowledge and then to reflect on and talk about what they are doing and how their understanding is changing. The teacher makes sure he/ she understands the students ' preexisting conceptions, and guides the activity to address them and then build on them. Constructivism has many benefits namely: Children learn more, and enjoy learning more when they are actively involved; students learn how to think and understand and transfer learning; students create organizing principles that they can take with them to other learning settings; it gives students ownership of what they learn, since learning is based on students ' questions and explorations, and often the students have a hand in designing the assessments as well; it engages the students ' initiatives and personal investments in their journals, research reports, physical models, and artistic representations; and it promotes social and communication skills by creating a classroom environment that emphasizes collaboration and exchange of
They should be able to teach the material in any way that they need to, in order to help the student better understand. Teachers can also do certain learning activities that are enjoyable to the students; making them enjoy going to school and eager to learn.

Today’s typical classroom is far more diverse and complex than ever before. With the ever changing standards, methodologies and strategies, teachers breathe life into them and navigate a lot of disparate personalities and various backgrounds, interacting with each other, in any way. (Sagor, R. 2000) Lately, there have been contentious discussions on the key issues of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, immigration and other dimensions of diversity and social dominance and its implications in education and schools.

Besides it works best in increasing student communication still and self-esteem; interestingly, it also helps some students who are shy to talk in public or with the teacher to be open and feel comfortable in talking and sharing. Not only improve student learning but peer teaching also facilitates the teaching since it gives the teacher more time in doing other research in teaching. By all these benefits provided by peer teaching, any levels of schools should bring in this learning approach to the classroom since it can provide students opportunities in explaining ideas and participating in activities in which they can learn a great deal like one quote from Jeff Adwood saying “Teaching Peers is one of the ways to develop
Qualitative data was collected through interviews, focus groups, student work, and a teacher research journal. After analyzing the data, it was revealed that multi-sensory education can lead to student motivation as well as provide an opportunity to use technology and make connections to the outside world. The findings of the study indicated that multi-sensory education can also help teachers to access students' needs and aid in fostering a positive classroom environment. Finally, using a teaching approach that targets the senses promotes the development of a student-centered classroom, and can encourage students, who may have been silent within traditional classroom to emerge and have a voice within the multi-sensory classroom. Teaching through multi-sensory approach has many implications for new teachers, such as this teacher researcher, who are seeking ways to actively and meaningfully engage students within the
To be developmentally appropriate, teaching practices must be successful, especially in producing a favorable impression on children—they must promote to children’s ongoing development and learning. Children who are interested and engaged in the classroom activities and lessons learn more. By stimulating active interest and engagement, I guarantee that children will get the most out of the instructional opportunities demonstrated in the classroom. I present information using a variety of learning formats, including large and small groups, choice time (in interest areas), and routines. Routines such as eating snacks and transitioning from one activity to another are all possibly valuable learning situations if teachers use these activities as chances for one-on-one conversations with children or to support a learning objective through singing a song or reciting a rhyme.
If a student is not making adequate progress, they try other interventions or ways of implementing instruction to help students to progress.
