Title: Challenging methods of teaching: the predictive inquiry model
Authors: Crawford, Lachlan
Issue Date: 1996
Citation: Teaching and Learning, 17(1),24-29
Abstract: Not surprisingly, challenging methods of teaching have been identified by a number of researchers (Rutter 1979, Edmonds 1982, Mortirnore 1988) as important in promoting efficient learning at both primary and secondary levels of schooling. Research findings indicate that high rates of student engagement in interesting and challenging learning experiences are related to superior levels of achievement (Schrenker 1976, Brophy and Good 1986). Challenging students through inquiry models of teaching, in particular, has resulted in increased understanding of subject material, productivity in creative thinking and development of skills for obtaining and analyzing information (Schrenker 1976, Voss 1982). The focus of this article is on the preparation and implementation of a Predictive Inquiry lesson in primary school science.
