Theories of Learning

There are multiple theories that can be used to approach teaching any grade level. In most instances I believe this to be a mix of theories dependent on grade level and subject. Any combination of these theories can provide adequate framework for a teacher to set up their classroom curriculum.

As any teacher can tell you, not everyone learns the same way. Some students are visual learners, some hands-on learners, but most use a combination of learning techniques to absorb knowledge. This link goes to a site that gives explanations and resources of learning theories.


Resources for teachers and instructors


As a substitute teacher, it is my duty to find appropriate resources to help guide me in pursuit of my goals. The following links have been invaluable, and I hope you find some use for them as I did. I have tried to include sites that aid in lesson planning, design and implimentation, as well as classroom disipline and control techniques.

This is a wonderful site for any P-12 educator. It holds links to numerous resources such as lesson plans, teacher tools, assessment tools, and much more. You can subscribe to eleven different newsletters, or browse their clipart portfolio, or even download lesson templates for all grade levels. This is a must have on bookmark.
