Community service at Mccleary Kirthi Banothu Natural Skills :D This study compares the effectiveness of conventional (lecture-based) and inquiry-based teaching methods. The four IMSA student authors taught six diverse sixth grade classes at a local middle school. Over the course of two units, four class sessions, the authors taught science classes about waves and erosion. During the units, the IMSA students brought hands-on activities that correlated with the material in the students' textbooks. The IMSA students gave short assessments at the end of every class period to gather data to compare lecture-style teaching by the regular teacher and the inquiry-based hands-on teaching by IMSA students. The assessments were created based on the textbooks and not on the student-written lessons. The results will help teachers make more informed decisions about what teaching methods to use in their classes. This study compares the students' assessment scores after the inquiry-based classes taught by IMSA students and after the lecture-based classes taught by the students' science teacher. After performing a multiple regression analysis, it was found that the IMSA students’ inquiry teaching methods raised the sixth graders’ quiz scores by a half letter grade on average.
Focusing Question: Which results in a greater retention in sixth grade students: Conventional lecture based lessons or Inquiry based classroom activities?
