Two sections of biology students at the eighth grade level were taught a unit concerned with the cell with two different methods. One group experienced only lectures and discussions. The other group experienced only laboratory sessions. Although there were certain limitations to the study, the general results tended to favor the laboratory approach. This was particularly apparent in the case of the upper one-third of the classes.
