Teacher- directed Instructions

In teacher-directed instruction:

    Students work to achieve curricular objectives in order to become critical thinkers
    Students complete activities designed by the teacher to achieve academic success
    Students respond to positive expectations set by the teacher as they progress through activities
    Students are given extrinsic motivators like grades and rewards in which motivates children to internalize information and objectively demonstrates their understanding of concepts
    Student work is evaluated by the teacher

A teacher-directed approach to learning recognizes that children require achievable expectations and that students must have a solid foundation before learning a new concept. For example, in order to learn multiplication properly, a student must understand repeated addition and grouping. This process cannot be discovered by most students without the direction of a teacher.
