Four essential assumptions of Contextual Teaching and Learning:
1. Teaching and learning are interactional processes.
2. Individual learners must decide to learn and to engage in the attentional, intellectual, and emotional processes needed to do so.
3. Teaching isn’t happening if learning is not occurring.
4. Learning is a developmental process that takes place throughout life (Sears, 2002, p. 2).
