Every teacher expects optimum level of processing in mind of them students. The level of processing is mainly depends upon memory process. Most of the students have retrieval difficulties on past learning. Memory difficulties directly related to sensory integration. In these circumstances the investigator made an attempt to construct Multisensory integration Approach Model based on sensory process and perceptual process. Multisensory Integration approach model contains three parts the first

There are relating new information to prior knowledge, Focusing attention to the information, developing sensory connection, Organizing the information, Expanding sensory images, Structuring the information and Practicing recall. The above instructional strategies develop stimulation, sensation, Attention, Perception, Imagery, conceptualization and memory. The learning outcome part contains from low level sensory integration (visual-Auditory) to high level sensory integration (Visual-Auditory-Tactile-Olfactory-Gustatory). The investigator regulates information processing of the students in brain through Multisensory Integration Approach Model. 1. Introduction Development of models of teaching is the recent innovation in teaching. An important purpose of discussing models of teaching is to assist the teacher to have a wide range of approaches for creating a proper interactive environment for learning. An intelligent use of these approaches enables the teacher to adopt him to the learning needs of the students. A number of educationist and psychologists have proposed model approach to teaching. Flender, (1970) [16] put his interaction analysis as a model of teaching and for this approaches he categorized the statements of the students and teachers into ten categories. In India, the first National project on models of teaching was planned, designed and executed during 1985-86. Definition of Models of Teaching Allen and Ryan (1969) [1] Modeling is an individual demonstrating particular pattern which the trainee through imitation. B. K. Passi L. C. Singh and D. N. Sansanwal (1991) [23]. A model of teaching consist of guidelines for designing educational activities and environments. Model of teaching is a plan that can also be utilized to shape courses of studies, to design instructional material and to guide instruction. Joyce and Weil, (1972) [19] explained Teaching of model is a pattern or plan, which can be a curriculum or courses to select instructional materials and to guide a teachers actions. Educators and psychologist have design several types of teaching models which provides suitable guidelines to the teachers for modifying the behaviour of the learners. As a matter of facts some sorts of models of teaching have been existence since times immemorial. In simple language a models of teaching may be defined as a blueprint designed in advance for providing necessary structure and direction to the teacher for realizing the stipulated objectives.
