Physical Science

Lecture vs. Activities/Inquiry/Everything Else

Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:22 PM

With me being in my final year as an education major, I have been introduced to numerous ways to get students learning. Inquiry has been a large portion of that. As much as I love hands on activities and inquiry lessons, there is science content that needs to be addressed in a traditional setting though, in my opinion. There needs to be some physical evidence that students can go back to at any time to answer their questions. Don't get me wrong, I want to keep the lecturing to a minimum in my future classroom. I believe that students need to be able to write the most important aspects of that topic down to apply to everything in the future.

I understand students need notes to refer to but those can come after exploration.
