In this chapter, there will be a presentation of how teaching models help teachers focus on different theories. The teaching model is a tool that will help teachers approach differentiated learning with students who have a diverse educational background. Teachers need to be aware of a diverse background and how to apply models for teaching different activities. If the correct model is selected teachers can use this to develop concepts based on objectives. The models may include instructional models, constructivism, problem-based, project-based, Socratic and inquiry based. Following are the key areas that will be discussed in this chapter; importance of a Teaching model, teaching model - (Glaser teaching model) – Looking at the objective, activity, assessment and reflection on improvements, information processing using a teaching model, Gagne's 9 stages of learning process to use in a Teaching model and conceptual models - take information, use it and respond to it (Instruction models, Constructivism, Problem based, Project based, Socratic Method, Inquiry based).

Importance of a Teaching Model

Teaching models are useful tools that help teachers focus teaching concepts on theories. “When teachers plan an activity, some students participate actively but others do not show any interest. We know that students have different backgrounds and learning experiences, therefore, we cannot expect that all learn in the same way” (Paredes, 2017, p. 191). This point suggests that teachers are aware that diverse backgrounds and experiences need different methods to teaching activities.

Since students have different learning styles and different multiple intelligence they process and adapt to a learning processes differently. Maheshwari noted that:

Teaching models merely suggest how various teaching and learning conditions are interrelated. In many fields models are prototypes of theories because they make possible our early conceptualization and study of phenomena. (Maheshwari, 2013, para 1)

Teaching models can help teachers modify information and build on concepts based on different learning activities.

Teaching and learning should be managed together not only by the teacher but the student as both play a key role in the management of the teaching and learning process. A teaching model provides teachers with a process for working through learning plans, curriculum design and changes that can be used to analyze and evaluate proposed activities and assessment. Since there are many different models that teachers can use, this chapter will be evaluated to show how different models can be used in the teaching process. The first model that will be reviewed is the Glaser teaching model.
