Albert Einstein once said “Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” This is key in learning, but what is one to do when everybody teaches differently. Teachers must try to accommodate the need of every student, which is difficult because there are twenty or more students in every class with differing learning styles.

In order to do well one must to fully understand why and how something happened. Without a background and understanding, the events of history aren't significant.

Making it relate to the student made them care more. Part of the reason she taught this way is because she knew she was teaching students challenging material, but made it possible to have a full understanding. Another teacher teaches by working problems out and showing students examples, then makes them work the problem while she works it on the board. This is helpful in classes like math and physics. She does well in teaching the information, and making sure everyone understands. Telling students how to do a problem step-by- step helps them have a clear concise understanding of the steps to complete when working the problems or equations. This attempt is helping students who learn by watching something be done or listening to how to do something all at once. Once she feels they understand she makes...
