To be an effective teacher we should be flexible and honor diversity when giving instruction. No all students are the same and not all students learn the same way. If something is not working as educators we should try to use other strategies such as collaborative, cooperative and active learning. Making the students use real or imagined scenarios, concept mapping, discussion questions, debate and even peer instruction. Here I included two info graphics one for direct instruction and one for indirect instruction that can help you out when trying to be flexible with your instruction.
