    In high school science classes, what stood out to you as the most effective method of teaching?

    What types of lessons do you still remember from science class?

    I had a British chemistry teacher named Mr. Firsht. He employed a multi-modal instructional method that was highly effective. It was visual, simple language (auditory-delivery), laced with repetition (both visually and auditory), sometimes active learning or hands-on (i. e. Experiments), Firsht usually associated chemistry with something we could relate to (i. e. Experiment to extract caffeine from a plant or a ridiculous classic British rock song about the elements), he liked to ask questions to check our understanding; actually after I became a psychologist many years later I somewhat suddenly realized he was employing what we consider the Modern Socratic Method...
    I think it is not only what I remember but how much of his curriculum I still remember. He truly taught for long term recall...

      Thank you for your response! Mr. Firsht sounds like a highly effective teacher. His all-encompassing method of teaching science is what I aspire to do in my classroom. It's amazing what the brain is able to recall using the proper learning techniques

      Thank you, Hannah, I was indeed lucky to have him in high school. If you Google in quotations "Revelation Theory of Learning" you may find that particular of interest to you...
