Inductive Versus Deductive Approaches in Teaching a Lesson in Chemistry
Hermann, G. D.; Hincksman, N. G.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 15, 1, 37-42, Jan 78
With a sample of 229 ninth-grade chemistry students, an investigation of students' retention abilities as related to instructional approach (inductive or deductive), IQ, gender, and anxiety level was conducted. Results showed that subjects experiencing deductive instruction performed slightly better on an immediate retention test. Girls outperformed boys but other idiographic variables revealed no significant differences between groups. (CP)
