Revising Geology Labs To Explicitly Use the Scientific Method.
Hannula, Kimberly A.
Journal of Geoscience Education, v51 n2 p194-200 Mar 2003
Proposes that content- or skill-based labs can be revised to explicitly involve the scientific method by asking students to propose hypotheses before making observations. Students' self-assessment showed they felt that they learned a great deal from this style of labs and found the labs to be fun; however, students felt that they learned little about the scientific method.
