Teacher Development

Using textbooks – Teachers and Learners

Teachers can use textbooks in a number of ways. How a textbook is used is dependent on the subject and grade level for which teaching is provided. The methods described here need to be adjusted for different subjects, grade levels and type of learners. Teachers are encouraged to use textbooks in a variety of ways to stimulate and maintain learner interest. Dr C.J.D Visser shares his summary of how learners and teachers could be using textbooks.
