illustrate reflection on the best method of teaching creatively.
When it comes to keeping students interested, many teachers often feel like they are shooting arrows in the dark.

It is critically important to keep the material interesting and to make it applicable to everyday life. In order to truly learn the materials (as opposed to merely memorizing them), students must be involved in interesting, interactive and applicable activities.

The integration of technology and visual aids into the teaching process can also make a significant difference in how enthusiastic students are about learning.

how was the value lesson developed?
Weegy: Teaching values through examples and models: Children like heroes and they want to be like their heroes. Their heroes include people they know, people they see in television and movies, and people they read about or hear about. [ Characters in nearly every story children encounter serve as models for children. Children are watching characters from history, from school reading books and library books, from comic books, and from television and movies every day as models. Even toys such as Barbie dolls and Hot Wheels, which are advertised for children, become models of ideals. When used in school, the modeling approach involves getting children to look at figures in stories and history as the kind of people that they should aspire to be. As a way of teaching values, modeling involves making children more aware of people, of accomplishment and principle, and makes children feel more positive toward these people. ] User: there are dull teachers, dull textbooks, dull films but no dull subjects.. do you agree (More)
