Traditional instruction


Traditional instruction – a structured education program that focuses on face-to-face teacher-centered instruction, including teacher-led discussion and teacher knowledge imparted to students. Students are matched by age, and possibly also ability. Instructional materials are based on textbooks, lectures, and individual written assignments. All students in the classroom generally receive a single, unified curriculum. Subjects are often individual and independent instead of integrated and interdisciplinary, particularly in secondary school.
