Most classical conditioning is involuntary. Considering this, please share your thoughts on the following; Is it ethical for politicians and advertisers to use classical conditioning to influence our thoughts and behavior? Why or why not?
As someone who has sat through various classrooms with instructors who all teach with different styles, I have been made aware of the impact a certain teaching style can have on myself and my fellow classmates. While an effective method is engaging and wholesome, an ineffective is just the opposite allowing for grades and students’ views of school to suffer. Since I have been directly affected by the methods teachers use, I have chosen to research the best possible method to effectively convey information to a body of individuals. Techniques commonly found in classrooms that I intend to analyze are group work, lecture, flipped classroom, and technology. I will also research different learning types such as visual, auditory, and kinesthetic, and analyze how they relate to the effectiveness of teaching strategies. After evaluating both sides to each method, I will determine the best one to be used in the classroom. I hope that through my research, I as well as those reading my paper will gain knowledge on different methods at hand and those in the department of education benefit from a paper focused on ways to better a classroom. The first method of teaching is group work in which students are divided into teams and instructed to complete various assignments with the individuals in their group. Students are either split into groups by the teacher or allowed to choose their partners. The size of each group typically corresponds with the size of the class. Students may be asked to complete various assignments together or formulate a discussion group to elaborate on the lesson. The method of group work poses many benefits for the instructor as well as the participants. Not only does it benefit the students academically, it allows them to grow socially as their exposure to other students is increased. When the individuals are paired in groups, some may be pushed out of their comfort zone and forced to discuss classroom topics with students they may have otherwise never interacted with. Group work provides students with social skills they may not realize they are gaining. Due to being in groups working on assignments, the students become the teacher to other students who may not understand the concept. As individuals who are on the same educational level, one student might find a way to explain the material in a language the other students can better comprehend (Forslund). Hearing material from another source can be a game changer in the world of learning, for having something explained even the slightest bit different may help a student make a connection and grasp the material.
