Instructional Practices in Fifth- Through Eighth-grade Science Classrooms of a Selected Seventh-day Adventist Conference
This investigation focused on instructional practices within fifth- through eighth-grade science classes of selected Seventh-day Adventist schools. Teachers reported regular use of discussion, student projects, and tests or quizzes. Most respondents said they did not feel prepared or had "never heard oP’ inquiry, the learning cycle, or constructivism. Over half the respondents felt discussion, student-projects, and hands-on laboratory work were effective instructional practices in science classrooms. Learning cycle and constructivism were described by most respondents as "not at all" effective; many respondents had "never heard of" these same two instructional approaches. © 2004, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
