College students in interactive classes score higher on tests than those in traditional lecture classes, according to a new study.
College students in interactive classes score higher on tests than those in traditional lecture classes, according to a new study.

This is the VOA Special English Education Report.

Professors have lectured for centuries. But how effective is lecturing to students compared to working with them?

A new study compared two classes of a beginning physics course at the University of British Columbia in Canada. There were more than two hundred sixty students in each section. Both were taught by popular and experienced professors.

The study took place for one week near the end of the year. One class continued to be taught in the traditional lecture style. The other professor was replaced by two teachers. They had little teaching experience but received training in interactive teaching methods. The training was led by Carl Wieman, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist who leads a science education program.

There was almost no lecturing. The teachers put the students in small groups to discuss and answer questions. They gave them readings and quizzes to finish before class so they would come prepared to discuss the material.

Professor Wieman says before the experiment with these and other activities, test scores for both classes were the same.

CARL WIEMAN: "There was a great deal of careful data collected showing how identical the two sections, these two large sections of the class were beforehand. And this focused very much on looking at exactly what could be learned with the different methods from the classroom experience, the time when you have the maximum instructor interaction, or face-to-face interaction time."

Afterward, both classes took the same test. Students in the interactive class scored nearly twice as high as those in the traditional class. Attendance also increased that week.

Graduate student Ellen Schelew was one of the teachers. She says the methods they used are designed to encourage students to think like scientists.

ELLEN SCHELEW: "Their brains are turned on. They're thinking hard and they're really working through these problems. So even if they don't have enough time to complete a given problem, they are prepared to learn from the instructor feedback that always follows groups' tasks."

The study appeared in May in the journal Science. It seems to confirm earlier findings about lecturing to large classes. But some experts have criticized the way the study was done.

Both of the researchers who taught the class, Ms. Schelew and Louis Deslauriers, were also authors of the study. This could raise questions about whether their involvement might have influenced the results.

Professor Wieman is currently on leave from the University of British Columbia and the University of Colorado. He is the associate director for science in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

He says research has shown better ways to teach based on evidence about how the brain learns. And he hopes more professors will learn that how someone teaches may be more important than who does the teaching.

And  that's the VOA Special English Education Report. I'm Christopher Cruise.

The interactive teaching will not only practise the students' thinking way like the experts in physical problems but also makes the process more interesting.

The biggest difference between the way knowledge is taught between China and America is like what is said above. In China, children from an early age are expected to memorize information, like the rules of the mathematics that govern the way the computing is done and information in the textbooks. There is not any interactive discussion. The teacher lectures and the students listen and put down what have been said by the teacher which should be memorized.

The children are required to memorize information instead of thinking for themselves. But when it comes to higher education, problems arise. In order to survive college, students in the college have to change their way of learning from memorizing information which is quite easy to thinking for themselves which is hard and they cannot adapt to. So many college students find it hard to adjust to the teaching of college. However in America, children from an early age are required to think

for themselves and do things without someone else telling them what to do. In this way, the students in America are able to create useful ideas about what is happening around them. That is why nearly all the Nobel prize winners come from America. It is really correct that how teaching is does is quite more important than who does the teaching. And now let's discuss what is being discussed in the paragraph. The students who make the same score before the experiment are divided into two groups.

One is taught by the competent and experienced student, using the traditional method of teaching. However, the other are taught by two teachers who have little experience but who have been trained by the interactive learning methods. The prior of the two sections are taught mainly in the form of lecturing and the later were taught using the interactive methods. They were given quizzes and reading to finish before they have a class so that they can have things to discuss.

After several days' teaching, the students taught using the interactive methods score nearly twice as high as the students taught using the traditional methods. This experiment focuses on looking at how much could be learned from the two different methods of teaching. And the interactive methods win.

How someone teaches may be more important than who does the teaching.

Thinking like a scientist which is more important than just memorize the rules ,article and some other information.
作者:钟燕会
yes,how someone teaches may be more important than who does the teaching.
