  • TITLE: The Role of Women in the Utilization of Inquiry-Based Science Instruction

    AUTHORS: William D. Simpson

    KEYWORDS: History of Science; Women in Science; Maria Mitchell; Vivian Coulter; The Learning Cycle

    JOURNAL NAME: Creative Education, Vol.3 No.1, February 22, 2012

    ABSTRACT: Historically women have been excluded from the domain of science since antiquity. Women were viewed as lacking the attributes necessary to carry out rational thought. However, women such as American astronomer Maria Mitchell in the 19th century during her tenure as Professor of Astronomy at Vasser College in the United States may have been the first scientist to utilize inquiry-based science instruction. During the 20th century an elementary teacher named Vivian Coulter was one of the first teachers at an elementary school in the Midwestern United States to utilize the learning cycle which is a form of structured inquiry-based science instruction. This led to a partnership with the University of Oklahoma that has led the learning cycle to be disseminated to many school districts in the Midwestern United States.
