The answer is that it depends on the type of groundstroke you want to produce. Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick both use a two-handed backhand to create enormouse top spin and strength. However, it is more difficult to reach a wide range of shots. A one-handed backhand allows versatility and you can hit wicked slice with it.

when the ball comes on your backhand you would return it with your backhand. Don't always use your backhand though because as my coach told me. Backhand wins you points. Forehand wins you games and matches. Without a backhand you can't win though

A backhand swing in tennis is using either one or two hands on the opposite side of your dominant hand to hit the ball. For example, if you have a two-handed backhand and you are right handed, you would swing at the ball with two hands on your left side. Thus, your backhand swing is on your left side with two hands.

If I understand your question, the best way is to show what is referred as 'stroke technique'. For example: forehand to forehand topspin, backhand to backhand topspin, forehand to forehand push/underspin, backhand to backhand push, and so on. This way, the ball is keep in play for a longer period of time so as to demonstrate the technique that is needed to master it.
