Rethinking Grade Levels & Courses

When you learn about a new topic, how do you learn about it:
The teacher/facilitator gives you direct instruction with the whole class
The teacher/facilitator gives you direct instruction with a small group or individually to you
You watch a video from your teacher/facilitator explaining it
You read text about it
You watch an outside video
You have fellow students explain it
