The purpose of the education project plan:

Students will realize their optimum potential by participating in innovative and gender-sensitive educational opportunities in the classroom and community.

General Teaching Approach

In planning your lessons, you should consider a wide range of variables including teaching techniques. In most classrooms the teacher relies heavily on traditional methods like lecture, recitation from the textbook and rote repetition. These are classified as teacher-centered instruction because they are based on a model of the teacher as the holder of and transmitter of knowledge and the students as passive receivers of that knowledge. Quite recently however, this model is being abandoned in favor of a student-centered approach. The student-centered model includes a variety of techniques aimed at active student participation and experiential learning. Often the teacher acts as a guide or facilitator for the activity. Some of these techniques include:

The classroom is rarely totally teacher- or student-centered, but somewhere on a continuum between these two models. We would want to encourage you to use the student-centered approach more, hence the discussion of that method into greater detail than the teacher-centered.
