General Biology Using Inquiry for Education Majors
           David T. Crowther, University of Nevada, Reno
ABSTRACT  
Introductory science for non majors has been a concern in the literature for the past 
two decades.  This study explores the method of teaching introductory biology between 
Biology 100, taught through traditional lecture and Biology 110, designed for K-8 
education majors utilizing a guided inquiry method.  Using a quasi-experimental 
pretest posttest design, the courses were compared for a six year period. The guided 
inquiry instruction made a significant difference in the amount of content learned 
for education majors consistently over time.
