Pedersen, Jon E.
School Science and Mathematics, v92 n7 p374-80 Nov 1992
High-school chemistry students (n=96) were studied to compare the effects of two forms of instruction on science achievement and anxiety toward science: (1) cooperative controversy with science, technology, and society issues; and (2) individualized instruction. Analysis of variance indicated significant reduction in anxiety of students instructed by cooperative controversy. No differences were found on achievement. (22 references) (MDH)
