TEACHING WITH VISION Dr.T.V.Rao MD
Socratic Teaching The oldest, and still the most powerful, teaching tactic for fostering critical thinking is Socratic teaching. In Socratic teaching we focus on giving students questions, not answers
A Socratic Questioner should: Practice a) keep the discussion focused b) keep the discussion intellectually responsible c) stimulate the discussion with probing questions d) periodically summarize what has and what has not been dealt with and/or resolved e) draw as many students as possible into the discussion.
The Teaching Trends Have Changed Times have changed since the early days of classroom education in every country. Classrooms look different and student learning styles are different—just think of the tools available to a teacher in the 19th Century compared to today.
Be Clear in your TeachingMost Important -Teach Skills Be clear about the goals of instruction and make them explicit to the students. Both you and the students have a better chance of achieving your goals if you make clear to them the relationship between the skills they are learning and the task they are completing.
Move From Traditional to Blended Teaching and Learning

Many Ways are Integrated for Learning Blending many methods
Blended learning There are a variety of ways to approach blended learning, but they all share an emphasis on allowing each student to learn in the way that suits him or her best.
Blended Learning offers Blended learning offers more choice in the best fit for your particular class. Teachers know every class is different. Some classrooms are filled with tactile learners, while others have a heavier representation of auditory learners.
Teach Students with Examples Help students understand what good reading and good writing look like by providing them with examples, examining work, reviewing portfolios, and discussing criteria
Creating Opportunities for Practice MUST give your students the opportunity to practice whatever you will expect them to be able to do. It's possible to give them practice exclusively through homework assignments, but research demonstrates that practice with immediate feedback is most valuable
Choosing teaching methods
Build on Your Knowledge Build on prior knowledge Have students actively participating in the learning process Use real-world data Give students frequent practice and timely and constructive feedback
Teach with Multiple Styles Address multiple learning styles (visual/verbal, active/reflective, global/sequential, sensory/intuitive)
Things you might do in class: Remind students of the relevance of this exercise to their lives; give them reasons to care. These could include, but are certainly not limited to: It will help you to understand any deformation in your home state It will hone your problem-solving skills It will enrich your life as you travel across the country Understanding deformation helps us to predict where we'll find oil and gas This is how geologists have figured out the history of the Earth
Be a Consistent Teacher Good teachers should always consistent. They set up few yet attainable goals. Views the confusion well every time a class departs the room loudly and the teacher will always flash a pleasant smile.
Do not be Biased Good teachers are not bias, but always fair and square with every dealings he makes. All of the pupils/students are respected in spite of colour of skin, intellectual attainment, age, religion, wealth, or physical condition. without doubt sincerity and quality of contributions are acknowledged.
Be Cheerful to the Job Good teachers always smile and laugh. So many young teachers become old before their time because, for making everything perfect causes them anxiety, enables them to shed off sense of humor. Plenty of apprehensive situations can be driven out by a placid remarks
Be Passionate to Students Good teachers are passionate and enthusiastic at all times. They get eager at a ball game. They show great interest in creating the model for the social studies exhibit.

Learn to Cooperate with many Good teachers encourage cooperation in the class with saying phrases like, “It is our class”, “We had a fine program” or say with compassion the phrases,
Have Faith in the Students Good teachers have faith on the capabilities of the children. They deem that all healthy pupils try their best in every task given to them
Good Teachers believe in High Standards Good teachers set high standards to their students. Each pupil’s performance is appraised in terms of his individual capacity. The slow learner’s small improvement may embody more effort than that of the very fast learner’s great improvements.
Best way to Survive is Consult others Good teachers consult others. They know that they do no have all the answers. When pupils fail to respond to corrective treatment, these teachers seek the help of parents, a counseling teacher, or principal
