Some Considerations in Achieving Effective Teaching and Learning in Science Education
Three research questions with null hypotheses guided the study with the aid of a quasi experimental research design.
These students were randomly assigned to two groups (treatment and control group). Treatment group were those taught
biology using the sensitized inquiry teaching method while conventional method (lecture) was used for the control group.(1)
Biology Achievement Test (BAT) was developed on the following units in biology, flower pollination, muscle structure and
function, and seed germination. All these were drawn from anatomy and physiology of flowering plants and animal physiology in
the biology textbook of SS1, to measure the initial and terminal academic achievement of the students. (2) Lesson notes were
prepared on the above mentioned units using the inquiry teaching method and the conventional method using a pre – test, post
– test experimental treatment. Thus, it is the contention of the author that the inquiry approach would enhance students’
achievement in biology,hence the thrust of this study.
