  1. A class is an important way to receive and share information and improve your knowledge about something. Because of that, the teacher´s practice leading with students is crucial to get good results to them. Some teachers usually talk on entire class; others usually encourage the students to participate on class, which is, on my point of view, the best way to learn and teach. This kind of approach depends on the type of discipline, the style of the teacher and the motivation of the students.
    Teachers who prefer spend all time class with information and theoretical knowledge can be clear on their statements. This type of approach is especially useful on Natural Sciences like Math, Chemistry, Physics and so on. When the contents are related with social issues, the real experience and the contrast of views are crucial to improve the students understanding. In this case, History, Political Science and Economy are some discipline which depends on opinion and contrasting of views. Therefore, teachers should encourage their students to think about the topics and try to build up your own opinion.
    When you link the theoretical aspects with experienced actions, you´ll bear in mind the information and you´d can process more complex information. This information can be used on future. Sometimes, when you only get the information to do your exams, you will easily forget it and you´ll should learn again to remember their details.
    When teachers encourage their students to start a debate, students often participate with more attention. Debates are always a good start to test the students comprehension about the facts and the practical uses for theoretical tools which are taught.
    In conclusion, teachers can be more efficient on educate their students to life when they try to involve students on the entire context of the discipline, theoretically and practically, inducing debates and sharing experiences.
