American Journal of Physics
written by Arnold B. Arons
"It has long been clear that tightly structured and directed laboratory experiments are dull and demoralizing for the students and generate little in the way of concept development or physical understanding." Based on this supposition, Arons suggests a reworking of the introductory lab to include a form of guided inquiry that provides "students with enough Socratic guidance to lead them into the thinking and forming of insights but not so much as to give everything away and thus destroy the intellectual experience." Relevant modes of inquiry and example applications are discussed.
