Why Do Most Science Educators Encourage To Teach School Science through Lab-Based Instruction?: A Neurological Explanation.
Kwon, Yong-Ju; Lawson, Anton E.
Journal of the Korean Association for Research in Science Education, v19 n1 p29-40 Mar 1999
Tests the hypothesis that, because it uses tri-dimensional sensory pathways which show a higher rate of neural activity than uni- or bi-dimensionals, lab-activity-based instruction is a more effective teaching strategy for learning science than verbal-based instruction. Applies manipulative teaching strategies that use visual, somatosensory, and auditory information pathways. (Contains 26 references.) (Author/YDS)
