Hello:

I'm going to introduce a teaching method, and I have no problem reducing 'I will introduce a teaching method which was developed by...' to 'I will introduce a teaching method developed by...'.
But if the sentence goes like 'I will introduce a teaching method which was developed by X and can be applied to elementary school students', can I still omit "which was" and say: "I will introduce a teaching method developed by X and can be applied to..."? If no, How would you say it?

    You still need the which. You can get rid of the rest.

    I will introduce a teaching method which was developed by X and which can be applied to elementary school students.

    Or maybe it should be "that".

    I will introduce a teaching method which was developed by X that can be applied to elementary school students.

    I will introduce a teaching method which was developed by X that can be applied to elementary school students.
