Structure More Effective In High School Science Classes, Study Reveals

Should kids be allowed to do self-directed research in science? Not according to the latest research in this article.As I delve into the intricacies of curriculum, I often wonder if we need to divorce pedagogical approaches in the humanities and math/science. I'm not at all saying that student-centric approaches aren't worthwhile in both areas, but do math and science need to be structured differently? Aristotle said as much in The Physics and I think he may be right. I'm not quite sure what that looks like, but I think it warrants further investigation.
