Teachers Should Not Only Inform but Also Entertain
Kubli, Fritz
Science & Education, v16 n6 p517-523 Jun 2007
Teaching is, in many respects, an art. Teachers must strike the right balance between sometimes opposite demands. On the one hand, they should lead students to scientific insights; and on the other hand, their teaching should be attractive. Teachers should not only inform, but also entertain. Experiments and stories can help them to combine these two aspects. Students appreciate both, as they have stated in a series of interviews. This feedback gives some ideas about how to use experiments and stories in order to improve science teaching.
