Constructivism and Science Teaching
This monograph addresses the basic ideas of constructivism in the context of science teaching. Instructional practices for applying constructivist-based teaching principles explained in this document include using open-ended, hands-on activities; cooperative learning; various questioning strategies; student journals; and a curriculum based on the learning cycle. For teachers new to constructivist principles, strategies for the gradual transition to a constructivist teaching style are outlined. Assessment options, the constructivist use of textbooks, and the varieties of constructivism are discussed. (WRM)
