Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Teaching methods and their relationship to learner achievement have long been an area of concern to educators. Experienced classroom teachers know that some instructional methods are more effective than others for presenting specific types of information to students. Teachers in all curriculum areas and at all grade levels are constantly evaluating methods of instruction in order to determine the methods that will result in the highest level of achievement for their students as the outcome of their instruction. Student achievement received added attention in recent years with the release of the report by the National Commission on Excellence in Education (1983) which states that "We are a nation at risk (p.11) because of a marked decline in educational achievement since the early 1960's. This report and the concern that it has generated have made educators' concerns for implementing effective methods of teaching more concentrated than in the past.
