Mentor / apprentice method

The idea behind this teaching method is to put two students in a certain set of conditions. One of them is more prepared (the expert) than the other (the beginner). This method of teaching “in pairs” stimulates both the “expert” and the “beginner.” It is used to structure the learning process, while laying the groundwork for the equitable distribution of knowledge. Thanks to this teaching method, each student is engaged in the process, with everyone recognizing their own capabilities and achieving success. This teaching method can be used in the classroom, but also – and simultaneously – in multiple classes, bringing students from the same or different age groups together, and pursuing different educational goals.
