    Your mention of the teacher and the step-by-step passage of the educational material reminded me of how I wrote about the conflicts of modern education and traditional education.
    The traditional method is mainly based on textbooks, while the modern method is based on practical materials. In the traditional method, presentation of materials starts with parts, then goes to the whole, while in the modern approach, presentation of materials starts with the whole and then goes to parts. The traditional method focuses on basic skills, while the modern method focuses on big ideas. Under the traditional teaching method, assessment is seen as a separate activity and carried out through testing, while under the modern teaching method, assessment is viewed as an activity integrated with teaching and learning, and is carried out through portfolio and observation. This is not really my point of view, this is a quote. For teaching to be effective, the teacher must learn a good method. The teacher has many options when choosing a teaching style. A teacher can write lesson plans from other teachers, or search for lesson plans on the Internet or books. When deciding which teaching method to use, the teacher must take into account the learners' experience, knowledge, environment, and learning objectives. Teachers know that students learn in different ways, but almost all children will respond well to praise. Students learn in different ways by assimilating information and demonstrating their knowledge. Teachers often use methods that are appropriate for different learning styles to help students retain information and strengthen understanding. A variety of strategies and methods are used to ensure that all students have an equal learning opportunity. Therefore, we should all step on a rake of unfinished fundamentals. They are not an indicator of science, but an important tool in understanding it.

    When I first started being interested in taxidermy as a teenager we only had enough money to get by. so no dvds or breakthrough manuals for me. My first projects were done after borrowing any library books on the subject i could find. most had been written in 60s or 70s. gave me a solid foundation to work with. when i was 16 i got a summer job doing floor installation and used that money to buy the breakthrough manuals and a few dvds.

    I feel using modern precesses that work for me in everyday work, but also having a good understanding of the older methods, which if nothing else gives me an appreciation for the modern methods works best. Also sometimes, the old procedures can come in handy when you run out of something midship and need to do something to get you through it.

    If you want to learn anything bad enough you can do it. Lack of drive is a recipe for failure (my opinion).

    I recently tore apart a moose done from the 60s. Very little of it was still stuck to the old paper form. Very few nails/ brads used either. One of the “old school techniques” was used. There were folded up 1967 newspapers used to build up areas on the form. They were interesting to read. Wonder where he learned to do that?

    very helpful, thanks for this thread, I know how difficult it is now for students and schoolchildren to study, and I recommend a very useful service that has been tested on my own experience https://edusson.com/write-my-lab-report, thanks to which I began to receive high scores and improved my position before the session, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with this service, place an order, and the team of professional writers take care of your lab reports, you can trust these experts, because they do everything quickly and efficiently, try and see for yourself.
