Increasing the Interest of Students in Plants
Strgar, Jelka
Journal of Biological Education, v42 n1 p19-23 2007
On first contact, students express less interest in plants than in animals. With suitable didactic methods, however, the teacher can actively interest students in plants. In our research we attempted to quantify the influence of these methods. 184 students of three age groups took part in the experiment. We used eight plants (one artificial). We found that it was possible to influence the level of student interest. (Contains 4 tables.)
