I teach World Geography and I do not lecture. I know teachers that can lecture for hours on end but, that's just not me. I give them assignments and worksheets that are related to their text book lesson. At the end of the lesson is when we review all together. That's where I do most of my talking. My students seem to be doing ok for the most part with this style, but i feel like I want them to learn more. I'm thinking of having the online book read to them out loud in class and have students fill out a reading activity that goes along with it. I would be stopping to check for understanding along the way and have think pair share sessions. Does that sound like a better idea than what I am doing now? Any comments or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
