Varying your Teaching Methods to Help your Pupils

Everyone learns differently and this is one of the things that can make teaching an especially challenging job. After all, how do you target one lesson to thirty individuals who all have different interests and learn in different ways? It’s challenging, but it can be done.

One of the main things you can do is to give your pupils a choice of activities. For the more academic students, this could involve a writing or analysis task that they can really get stuck into. For more creative, visual students, you may want to offer them the chance to illustrate their work.

Make sure you have lots of different resources available in the classroom too. Have a computer where students can do research as well as a number of books and dictionaries for them to use. You can also let your students record your lessons if you wish. This will help everyone in the classroom to take something from the lesson and learn in their own way.
