Gengarelly, Lara M.; Abrams, Eleanor D. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2009
Teaching students how to conduct authentic scientific inquiry is an essential aspect of recent science education reform efforts. Our National Science Foundation-funded GK-12 program paired science graduate students--fellows--with secondary science teachers in order to enhance inquiry-based instruction. This research examined the roles of the…

Sherman, Lawrence W.; And Others – 1986
This document presents reports of three studies focused on cooperative pedagogical strategies. The first concerns individualistic and cooperative goal structures in high school mathematics achievement. Two general mathematics classes were taught a unit on percents, one with a cooperative and the other an individualistic goal structure. The…

Okebukola, Peter Akinsola – Science Education, 1986
Describes a study in Nigeria comparing achievement in biology with a student's preference for cooperative or competitive learning situations. Proposes that rural children prefer cooperative learning strategies while urban children prefer competitive ones. Presents data proposing that learning preference (cooperative vs competitive) directly…

Kinney, James H. – 1989
Black students, other minorities and white students can show significant increases in achievement in biology by using a cooperative learning model. Concentrating on cooperating with group members toward a common goal is the ingredient that makes this cooperative learning model work. This study was designed to investigate the effects of cooperative…

Kinney, James H. – 1991
Much research has been conducted regarding the effectiveness and efficiency of cooperative learning on groups of students. Many student may think they like cooperative learning. Such students, however, may really prefer traditional learning in that same subject if they were taught by the same instructor. Students that have not been taught by the…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Research in Science Education, 2009
Most academic science educators encourage teachers to provide their students with access to more authentic science activities. What can and do teachers say to increase students' interests in participating in opportunities to do real science? What are the discursive "resources" they draw on to introduce authentic science to students? The purpose of…

Childs, Peter E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2009
Despite several decades of research into the teaching and learning of Science/Chemistry, at both secondary and tertiary level, it has had relatively little impact on practice. In many countries interest in studying Science at school and university is falling, and there is concern over falling numbers and falling standards. There is a changing…

Okebukola, Peter Akinsola – Science Education, 1985
A study comparing cooperative and competitive learning approaches in science was conducted with 630 eighth-grade Nigerian students using five different treatments. Combinations of cooperation and competition were found to be the best methods of instruction. Procedural demands on teachers using these methods were relatively easy. (DH)
