Abstract

Problem selection is critical in both project-based and problem-based learning. Krajcik, Czerniak, and Berger (2002) identify five criteria for good driving questions: sustainability, worth, feasibility, meaning, and contextualization. Although questioning is a central strategy in the sciences, many science students lack the ability to formulate good questions. Chin and Kayalvizhi (2002) find that students who work in groups to formulate questions were better able to formulate investigable questions. This study examines the effectiveness of asynchronous online discussion groups and face-to-face discussion as a vehicle for honing driving questions of preservice science and mathematics teachers engaged in a course on project-based instruction.
