The Problem: The study was designed to determine whether or not fifth and sixth grade children achieve and retain both the factual materials and their applications better when a unit in electricity and magnetism is taught by the inductive method than when it is taught by the lecture-demonstration technique. Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that with respect to the achievement of concept-understandings and their applications of the content of a unit in electricity and magnetism, the lecture-demonstration instructions are slightly superior to the inductive method procedure, particularly when girls are involved. For delayed retention, the type of instructional method employed makes very little difference. [TRUNCATED]
