The purpose of this study is to analyze how students learn best and to discover the methods in which they like to learn new information. Students often find learning in science classrooms difficult or uninteresting. My goal as a future science teacher is to stimulate students so that they are interested in learning the processes and findings of science. There are a myriad of ways that researchers and science teachers think that students can be engaged, such as demonstrations, labs, and scenario-based teaching. I would like to survey students, mainly freshmen in introductory classes, and ask them if they prefer to learn by demonstrations, labs, or scenario-based teaching. I am hoping this information will benefit me in my future classroom so that I may connect with as many of my students as possible and elevate students' knowledge of science.
