Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


A 16-week case study of two middle school students revealed the limitations of particular instructional methods. The investigation aimed to discover why students can succeed in all courses except one. Using inquiry-based learning and combinations of the V-A-K-T model allow for multiple connections of course content and previous experience. The study?s findings are relevant to administrators, classroom teachers, and curriculum coaches as they pertain to maximising learned content within adolescents.
