I have taught students in the United States, South Korea, and China. I spent a year and a half working in a university position where my job entailed researching best practices. I have also taught sessions at teacher conferences on interdisciplinary methods, using non-traditional assessments, and engaging students effectively. What I've found to be true everywhere is that an engaged class learns (and remembers). If the only person talking is the teacher, there's a good chance that the class is not engaged.
I believe in a hands-on interdisciplinary style with lots of effective conversation going on. I never lecture for more than fifteen minutes without some form of engagement for the students. If students are coming to class early because they want to know what's going to happen or are talking at lunchtime about something you've covered, then you're doing it right.
