Hudgins, Bryce B.; And Others
Journal of Educational Research, v88 n1 p15-27 Sep-Oct 1994
Fifty middle-grade students conducted science experiments either as members of small groups taught skills of self-directed critical thinking, or as members of a teacher-directed class, or as members of a control group. Experimental students scored highest on tests of relevant science content. The first group outperformed the others when individually given new problems to solve. (SM)
