Eclectic: I do whatever will work with students. I like hands on, active learning environments with students who question and interact with ideas. My classroom was usually a busy, crowded place with lots of resources. I use as many different techniques as I can find that I think will work - dimensions of learning, multiple intelligences, cooperative learning etc.
