The lecture method is just one of several teaching methods and not an example of discrimination at upper primary level. The lecture method is convenient and usually makes the most sense, especially with larger classroom sizes. Today, lecturing is a teaching method that involves, primarily, an oral presentation given by an instructor to a body of students. Many lectures are accompanied by some sort of visual aid, such a s a slideshow, a word document, an image or a film.

Kohlberg is biased against women.This challenge is due to the fact that Kohlberg doesn’t take into account the differences between men and women. e.g., women are more likely to base their explanations for moral dilemmas on concepts such as caring and personal relationships. These concepts are likely to be scored at the stage three levels. Men, on the other hand are more likely to base their decisions for moral dilemmas on justice and equity. Those concepts are likely to e scored at stage or six.
In order to solve problems, students need to define the end goal. This step is crucial to successful learning of problem-solving skills. Teacher can ask students to predict “what would happen if…” or explain why something happened. This will help them to develop analytical and deductive thinking skills. Also, ask questions and make suggestions about strategies to encourage students to reflect on the problem-solving strategies that they use.
In a learner-centered classroom, both teachers and students reflect on the learning process. Teachers learn to shift the focus to the learners and encourage them to share responsibility for their learning.
Intrapersonal intelligence is the ability to understand oneself and to interpret and appreciate one’s own feelings and motivations. Therapists, actors, caregivers and writers are all people who can bring high levels of self-awareness to their work. If this intelligence becomes strong point, then one may like to work alone and sometimes may like to work shy away from others. He/she may tend to be in tune with inner feelings, values, beliefs and thinking processes.
