Practical Teaching Methods | West Coast Baptist College

Practical Teaching Methods

This is a senior-level course designed for elementary and secondary education majors. Junior students may take the course as well at the discretion of the instructor. This course meets for half a semester. The primary emphases are: 1) examining and testing modalities of students; 2) examining the various methods of teaching that may be utilized in the classroom; 3) studying the areas of the brain and how they relate to modes of learning and memory; and 4) developing lessons to make learning “stick” better, meaning the knowledge and skills taught are more readily remembered by the student. Assignments include reading the course text, comparing various passages to Scripture, writing a paper explaining learning modalities, and writing detailed lesson plans that exhibit a “sticky” learning paradigm. PREREQUISITE: College standing as a junior or senior in the BRE Education Program.
