Small Group Inquiry.
Koller, Martin M.
Learning in small groups is a practical way to bring about behavior change. The inquiry learning process is perceived to be the most natural and scientific way of learning. Skills developed include those of problem-solving task analysis, decision-making, value formation and adaptability. The art of small group interaction is developed. Factual learning is equal to or greater than that resulting from other methods. Conceptual learning and knowledge retention resulting from this method are superior to that of others. Attitudes, interests, differing learning styles, and feelings are provided for in an effective and meaningful way. The two units presented are designed to assist the teacher in implementing the process. Facilitative worksheets are included. An annotated bibliography provides support for the propositions. The units have been used with students in the third, fifth, eighth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. (Author)
