To enhance students’ motivation and engagement in learning Science through hands-on experiential lessons outside the formal curriculum.
Inquiry-based Learning in Action: Science Tutorials
location_on Hong Kong
We established a 14-hour science tutorial course for Grades 9-10 students, which was comprised of many fantastic hands-on experiential lessons. Making good use of small classes, over 20 newly developed investigative activities greatly promoted students’ curiosity and motivation in learning science.
“Learning by Doing” is the crucial element that drives students to learn, and it is definitely my favorite teaching pedagogy.
