Engaging the Alternative Learner: An Examination of Active Learning Practices within World History
Date of Award
Master of Education (MEd)
This mixed methods study sought to examine the effects of active learning practices in a World History class on both the general population and alternative education students. 14 freshman and sophomore high school students participated. Although there is some evidence to suggest that students can learn more information from active teaching practices than traditional methods, the findings of this study remain inconclusive in determining one dominant or preferred method of teaching. In fact, this study found that students clearly identified the need for both instructional practices.
