Presenter for the Following Session
- Problem-Based Learning for Healthy Hearts
New content has primarily been introduced through lectures in content-heavy science courses. Students are often disengaged in this teacher-centered instructional method. Currently, there are few published studies on the effect of problem-based learning (PBL) in high school science classes in the United States. The purpose of this action research study is to evaluate the effectiveness of PBL module in a blended learning environment to increase concept attainment in high school students at a private high school on O‘ahu.
