Abstract:
"..As the teacher gains experience and knowledge, he or she will begin to develop an individual approach or personal method of teaching, one that draws on an established approach or method but that also uniquely reflects the teacher's individual beliefs, values, principles, and experiences..." (Richards & Rogers (2001: p. 251): In the light of the above quotation, it is essential for each teacher to have his /her own special and various methods and approaches of teaching which suit constantly changing education's demands nowadays. Discovering and improving the methods of teaching play a great role in the teacher's success. This teaching methodology has been shaped by my personal experience. It serves to be a framework to start the job of education successfully in teaching. From my point of view, I think that learning means more than knowledge that you gain from studying, but it is a series of discoveries that last for a lifetime. Constructivist Learning Theory explains that if learners create their own know ledge instead of having somebody to create it for them, they will learn best. If everything in life is made ready for the student, learning will be meaningless. I think that the only way to make the students overcome the mistakes which they make during the process is by learning from mistakes or experience. Great efforts in teaching methodology have been made by educators and scholars in the field of teaching and learning English as a second language. Depending on the various purposes of teaching, there are appropriate methods which can be used by the teacher although each method may have pros and cons. In the field of education, there are numerous methods, approaches and techniques that aid in the profession as a teacher. To be a successful teacher, reflections should be done after each lesson to make sure that I have attempted the suitable methods for my class. Lastly, it is essential to conform to the values of Ministry of Education to accomplish the desired outcomes from students.
