this one is hard to me cause I do not know.... Even one of my co worers had a hard time too.. “how students learn science is just as important as what
they learn. In the teaching of science, a major objective is to develop students’ problemsolving
capabilities. To do this, teachers must structure learning experiences to provide
students with opportunities to participate in inquiry processes” (p. 269).

Dawn -- or Troyer --
First -- think how you would approach teaching as a constructivist. The inquiry-based approach plans lessons so that students can reach their own conclusions. Doing science experiments, social studies research papers, and assigning math word problems helps students learn first hand about fundamental principles.
Then, investigate the traditional model, in which the teacher tells students the facts and they dutifully write down these "pearls of wisdom."
You've been a student for over 12 years. With which method did you learn the most? Why?
Think about it.
