is Indirect Instruction?
contrast to the direct instruction strategy, indirect instruction
is mainly student-centered, although the two strategies can complement
instruction seeks a high level of student involvement in observing,
investigating, drawing inferences from data, or forming hypotheses.
It takes advantage of students' interest and curiosity, often encouraging
them to generate alternatives or solve problems.
indirect instruction, the role of the teacher shifts from lecturer/director
to that of facilitator, supporter, and resource person. The teacher
arranges the learning environment, provides opportunity for student
involvement, and, when appropriate, provides feedback to students
while they conduct the inquiry (Martin, 1983).
