A Comparative Study of the Academic Achievement of Primary Students When Learning Science through the Directed Reading Activity or Cooperative Learning Approach.
LaCarrubba, Angela
A study compared the academic achievement of two second grade samples (from a school in Westfield, New Jersey) learning a unit of science with two different instructional methods. The experimental sample of 19 students was taught a unit of science by a classroom teacher using the cooperative learning method, while the control sample of 19 students was taught the same unit in science by a classroom teacher using the Directed Reading Activity Approach. Comparison of the unit test scores indicated no significant difference in academic achievement between the two samples. One table of data is included and an appendix of data is attached.
