of discovery methods of teaching.
Personal experiences with discovery learning methods - Everyone who teaches by discovery or inquiry-based methods does it a little differently.
This page (part of the Legacy of R. L. Moore site) contains about 30 short notes online
and references to about 30 more. Teachers give their experiences using these methods
and their impressions of their own teachers who used the methods.
