How can teachers select and use teaching methods more effectively?

What is it about?

This article provides a framework to select and use known or newly-developed teaching methods for students so they can acquire new academic or behavioral performance and use it voluntarily. The framework addresses the entire spectrum of performance all the way from acquiring the performance up to independent performance, which is the ultimate goal of all teaching.

Why is it important?

Developing teaching methods and investigating their effectiveness are important. However, even effective practices can be used ineffectively depending on how the teacher use the methods or practices. Teachers need guidelines such as the framework that this article presents.
