Abstract

A teacher has versatility in his/her teaching methodologies to create a positive learning environment. Teaching methods highly depend upon the nature of the topic, content, grade level, and needs of students. The present study divulges a comparison between Special Education Teachers (SETs) and Inclusive Education Teachers (IETs) in making appropriate teaching pedagogical choices to clarify the learning concepts of special children in special education and inclusive education classrooms. The sample of the study consisted of 500 inclusive education teachers and 500 special education teachers. The study revealed that there was a significant difference in the pedagogical choices of SETs and IETs based on their gender, locality, education, and experience. The majority of the SETs used the demonstration method, drill method, task analysis method, and activity method, whereas IETs used the lecture method as their preferred teaching method. The study revealed that SETs chose need-based teaching methodologies which were more appropriate to clarify the concept and meet the learners’ needs.
