Cohen, Herbert G.
School Science and Mathematics, v92 n3 p126-32 Mar 1992
Presents a study to examine the effects of a verbal teaching strategy versus a strategy providing instruction using activities and manipulatives in four seventh grade earth science classes with students of varying cognitive abilities (n=83). Results indicate that students with more cognitive structures perform better and that using manipulatives helps construct science knowledge. (MDH)
