Principles of Teaching

Educational psychology has discovered a variety of teaching methodologies based on learning rules and teaching principles. The teaching principles, according to Webster, are “practical and complete learning laws” that “confirm the rule of action.” This is most common among students who desire to improve their learning abilities. The learning principles serve as a framework for making learning more practical and meaningful.

The term “teaching principle” refers to the beginning and end of all facts and events in Latin. Reading, exercise, and effect, according to Edward Thorndike, are the three laws of learning. Some important psychological ideas in teaching:

  • motivation 
  • action and interest
  • planning
  • division
  • specific goal
  • democratic dealing
  • linking with life
  • recognizing differences
  • selection, revision, creation and recreation 

These ideas have been tested in real-life scenarios, resulting in exceptional insights and practical learning.
