There are very few studies concerning the importance of teaching methods in biology education and environmental education including outdoor education for promoting sustainability at the levels of primary and secondary schools and pre-service teacher education. The material was selected using special keywords from biology and sustainable education in several scientific by: Frederick Douglass (c. –95) QUOTATION: If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

Constructivist teaching practices, on the other hand, help learners to internalize and reshape, or transform, new information. Transformation occurs through the creation of new understandings (Jackson , Gardner b) that result from the emergence of new cognitive structures. directly on the classroom, and on the teaching and learning that occur within it.

Constructivist approach to teaching in which students are encouraged to discover principles for themselves. students are encouraged to learn largely on their own through active involvement with concepts and principles, and teachers encourage students to have experiences and conduct experiments that permit them to discover principles for themselves.

Which constructivist approach is the teacher using to promote meaningful learning. Concept mapping A kindergarten teacher reads The Cat in the Hat out loud to his students, shows the students an animated version of the story, and then chooses a few students to tell the story to the class in their own words.

This study compared an undergraduate non-majors biology lab section taught in a traditional teacher-centered style with a similar section taught as a constructivist class. Weekly lab quiz scores, attendance, a science attitude test and analysis of videotapes were used to determine whether student interest and performance were affected by the.

Teaching. My discussion of teaching is divided into two sections. The first concerns the laboratory and the second argues for a more systematic approach to instruction. The national survey indicated that sincescience teachers have increased the amount of time in lecture and decreased the time in laboratory activities (Weiss, ).Cited by: 5.

Module 6 Sample Lesson Plans in Science 4 There are topics that some teachers find difficult to teach. They call such. Some teachers claim that the topics require subject teachers or specialists to teach them.

However, with adequate preparation, teaching these topics should not be problematic. It is a matter of preparation. The authors illustrate the implementation of these principles in three case studies which focus on photosynthesis, evolution and estuarine biodiversity.

This U.S. approach to education, which by many measures continues at all educational levels today, has been dubbed the “mile-wide, inch-deep” approach to science education, in that students have familiarity with or knowledge of a host of concepts, but the depth of their understanding of any given science concept and its connection to Cited by: Research in Science Teaching and Learning: A Human Constructivist View In a now-classic study by Seattle high school physics teacher Jim Minstrell (I ), students were asked about the forces acting on a book lying flat on a by:   Constructivist teaching techniques work well in various instructional settings, but many teachers remain skeptical because there is a lack of quantitative data supporting this model.

This study compared an undergraduate nonmajors biology lab section taught in a traditional teacher-centered style to a similar section taught as a constructivist. Plant nutrition and photosynthesis is one of the most difficult issues teachers are confronted with in science classes.

This can be due to alternative conceptions students’ hold, which are often profoundly contrary to their scientific counterparts.
