It's best to engage children in small groups, around 15 children to one teacher, so that all children receive personalized attention and the opportunity to ask questions.
- Interactive learning becomes possible when group sizes are small, and every child gets an opportunity to question and seek answers.
- Emphasis is on asking questions, as that removes all inhibitions among children.
- This approach also opens up conversations among children, and between teacher and students.
- Every child gets personalized attention, and understands and learns at his or her own pace.
- When children are asked to write their understanding in their own words, it develops their expression abilities.
- 'Cheating' or borrowing ideas is not frowned upon, as it can help in peer-to-peer learning.
