modern teaching approaches mta
Modern Teaching Approaches(MTA)
  • MTAis described as the teaching approach that leads to interesting and productive learning. It is also viewed as an approach that results to meaningful learning.
  • The revised curriculum deemphasises in totality the traditional teaching approach (TTA).
  • TTA is viewed as being sterile/non-interactive, teacher-dominated, expository and encourages memorisation of facts, (rote learning).
characteristics of mta
Characteristics of MTA:
  • Learner centred
  • Activity or task-based
  • Interactive
  • Authentic Material (must come from learners’ immediate surroundings)
  • Integrative (no repetition of concepts under different themes)
  • Conceptual Understanding
  • Comprehensive Assessment
