when should the indirect method be used?
Indirect teaching method 1: inquiry-based learning
1. [ Orientation
Introduce the learning goals.
Explain why inquiry-based learning is being used.
Explain the task, for example, what students will be doing, timing, expected products, whether working individually or in teams.
Introduce a well-defined and realistic question or issue to be investigated.
Explain the inquiry
Where necessary, teach students how to:
clarify the purpose of the research and expected outcomes
formulate and refine their research question/s and then frame a hypothesis related to the topic of inquiry
develop a research plan
collect primary or secondary sources of information, data or evidence about the topic from appropriate, readily available sources
analyse and interpret the data, information or evidence to test the hypothesis
organise data, information or evidence into categories
identify the important data, information or evidence relative to the topic
develop an answer to the inquiry/research question
present their findings (report).
Monitor students' progress and evaluate what teaching strategy, resource or learning support is needed to help them progress.
Encourage students to reflect on and share the process of their inquiry, what worked well and why it worked well.
Facilitate sharing of findings.
