What we talk about when we talk about best practices: Methods and approaches
from By: Debra Josephson Abrams
The previous two articles in this series examined the elements that constitute a best practices ESL program and began looking at the components of a best practices curriculum. Today, we look at the differences between methods and approaches and the critical application of multiple intelligence theory, learning styles theory and learning strategies. Best practices research distinguishes between methods and approaches and asserts that educators must have the flexibility to adapt their pedagogical approaches as necessary.
