Favorite Word:

pedagogy
Pedagogy is the art or science of teaching. The word comes from the ancient Greek paidagogos, The word “paida” refers to children, which is why some like to make the distinction between pedagogy (teaching children) and andragogy (teaching adults). The Latin word for pedagogy, education, is much more widely used, and often the two are used interchangeably. Pedagogy is also sometimes referred to as the correct use of teaching strategies. (see instructional theory).
