Inquiry Based Method: A Case Study to Reduce Levels of Resistance
Mthethwa-Sommers, Shirley
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v22 n1 p55-63 2010
This article is based on a case study exploring the effectiveness of inquiry-based method of teaching to reduce levels of student resistance to diversity issues and increase students' willingness to become activists. The case study draws from a one-year action research conducted in a Foundations of Education class. Data were collected through class discussions, informal interviews, reflective journals, papers, and observations. The results of the case study showed that application of the inquiry based method reduced levels of resistance and increased students' willingness to engage in activism. The results of this case study may be meaningful not only in the field of education but also in other fields of study that are presented with student resistance. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
