Melaka's Old Teaching Methods


Teaching is the sharing of knowledge in classroom by means of a lesson. “les methodes sont les maitres des maitres” means methods are the masters of teachers. Teachers are educational workers who make method an aid to sharing knowledge. Teaching can either be deductive or inductive. In deduction, the teacher asks the students to answer questions. The students solve problems. The students try to manage situations with reference to rules, laws and axioms.

Children learn to write by writing, learn to do by doing and learn to express by relating their experience to some one else. Habit is the result of repeated action in the same line. Instruction without drill leads to chaos, wastage, inefficiency and educational disaster. In the earlier childhood inductive style lesson drilling was constant.
