Description of Practice Perspectives: Different Paths to Success: An Individualized Approach to Effective Teaching
After giving a presentation at a recent conference, I left with an uneasy feeling that some teachers in the audience were hoping to learn the one best way to teach their students. Perhaps everyone who teaches wants to discover exactly how to teach a skill, whether it be braille reading or finding a travel destination. However, this hope can obscure the reality that the best way to learn is not the same for every learner. There can be many good ways to teach a skill, and they may all be effective with different learners, under different conditions.
