Burrowes P. A. (2003) A student-centered approach to teaching general biology that really works: Lord’s constructivist model put to a test. The American Biology Teacher 65(7): 491–501.
Excerpt: This paper describes the results of a controlled experiment that tested the effectiveness of Lord’s teaching model in: 1. Helping students achieve better grades on standard midterm exams. 2. Develop higher level thinking skills. 3. Modify their attitude towards biology at a large, urban university. The objectives are to provide further evidence in favor of constructivist teaching over the traditional model, and to motivate fellow university professors to accept this challenge and move towards a more studentcentered method of instruction.
