Levels of Teaching

We have three teaching levels: 

  • Memory Levels of Teaching: It is the initial and thoughtless level of teaching. Teaching at the memory level is required the lowest level of instruction. The ability to think does not play a role at this level. Students only memorize the facts, information, formulas, and laws they are taught. The teacher’s role is central, while the student is secondary.
  • Understanding Level: Understanding something entails perceiving the meaning, grasping the concept, and comprehending the meaning. In the field of Education and Psychology, the meaning of ‘understanding’ can be classified as:

(i) Observing the total application of facts

(ii) A generalized insight into relationships

  • Reflective Level: This is also known as the introspective level. Reflecting on something gives careful thought to it over time. 
  • It also means thinking deeply about something. The term “electronic commerce” means the sale of electronic goods.
  • A student can reach this level only after passing the memory and comprehension levels.
  • Teaching at the reflective level enables the students to solve the real problems of life.
