Week 5 Reflection

This week we read about teaching and learning, and their relationship. I said that students learn by experimenting, failing, trying again, etc… Theresa brought up a good point that when teachers onlly use the instructionist method, students will think it’s the only way to learn. “When students habituate to these roles and routines over the course of their childhood and teenage years, they receive the message that the only way to learn is by being taught.” I also learned from Sara that because not everyone has the same personalities, communication and teamwork can be difficult to reach a goal. Which is why using different teaching methods is essential for learning.
