There are many different teaching methods and strategies that are used in pedagogy, and it is critical that teachers understand and know the benefits and negatives of each method. Teaching methods can affect classroom dynamics, so knowledge of these methods can enhance or diminish interaction between students and teachers in a classroom. Although there is no evidence that one teaching method is more effective than the others, studies have shown that there are some methods that have greater impact on classroom dynamics. The results of the studies in this literature review show that the use of methods such as differentiation, blended learning, student-centered learning, and feedback in a classroom have the most influence on students’ learning experiences. However, a combination of each teaching method can target the learning goals and needs of every student.
