This preparation is often called a daily lesson plan. Teachers have guidelines to help them plan their teaching. Guiding the Learning of Students: Most teachers use variety of methods to guide their students’ learning. For example they sometimes guide students individually and sometimes as a group. But even when dealing with students as a group, a good teacher’s basic concern is the individual development of each student.

Today, many teachers also use audio-visual materials, including tape recording, filmstrips and television programs. How Teachers Guide, Learning.
