Connecting To Increase Task Variety in Biology Classroom--A Case Study.
Chang, Wen-Hua
This study explores the impact of a researcher-developed World Wide Web database on a variety of tasks and talk in a science classroom. The study was part of an experienced teacher's action research project designed to increase student engagement in biology class. Lessons were videotaped approximately once a week throughout the entire school year, written materials were collected, and the teacher was interviewed at regular intervals. The teacher employed a wide variety of task designs applying strategies such as concept mapping, group investigation, games and tournaments, and models such as the learning cycle and Driver's 5-stage conceptual teaching model. The teacher-student interactions that evolved from whole-class discussions were found to differ in the ownership of scientific talk. (Contains 10 references.) (Author/WRM)
