      I have read a research paper that found that greater interaction between the teacher and learner (e.g. by the teacher asking questions) was more effective for learning than the teacher giving explanations and then clarifying anything the student didn’t understand. This study was done on adults so I am now doing something similar with children to see if I can find the same sort of effect.
