Content Acquisition in Problem-Based Learning: Depth versus Breadth in American Studies.
Gallagher, Shelagh A.; Stepien, William J.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v19 n3 p257-75 Spr 1996
This study found no differences in content acquisition (as measured by a standardized test) of 167 gifted 10th graders in American Studies classes who received either a problem-based learning approach or traditional instruction. Results did not support the common assumption that curriculum fostering higher order thinking skills inevitably results in lower content acquisition. (Author/DB)
