The Laboratory Method of Teaching : 

The Laboratory Method of Teaching Reynel Dan L. Galicinao Ruscelle Joy A. Tering

Laboratory Method : 

Laboratory Method Utilizes raw data or material things to produce better understanding of the subject matter or lesson Learning by doing Using reality instead of symbols. - reality has more vividness Investigatory or experimental

Objectives : 

Objectives 1. Make use of the power of observation and reasoning 2. Manipulate learning equipments 3. Make use of reality to make learning easier and more permanent 4. Make use of the scientific attitudes 5. Use the laboratory method or procedure

Advantages : 

Advantages Students learn by doing and come in contact with raw data or material objects in the teaching-learning process. Develops the power of observation and reasoning.

Advantages : 

Advantages 3. Develops the scientific attitude. 4. Gives an understanding of what research is and how to apply the scientific method of research

Advantages : 

Advantages 5. Gives training in organizing data gathered from real material objects and how these objects are manipulated to attain the objectives. 6. Since students come in contact with real life situations, it can be a preparation for solving real life problems.

Disadvantages : 

Disadvantages Uneconomical way of learning in time and material. Does not give much training in verbal expression and when the same equipment is used most of the time, its use becomes mechanical i.e., used without much thinking anymore

Scientific Method : 

Scientific Method Define the question Gather information and resources (observe) Form hypothesis Perform experiment and collect data Analyze data Interpret data and draw conclusions that serve as a starting point for new hypothesis

Preparation : 

Preparation Review of past lesson relevant to the present for apperception and motivation. Raising and defining the work to be done. Expected learning outcomes.

Preparation : 

Preparation d. Planning. (individually or groups) - what is important is that everyone knows exactly what he is going to do and to do it correctly and timely.

Actual Work Period : 

Actual Work Period Students work under the supervision of the teacher. (Supervised study) Students may work: - individually attacking the same problem or different problems - in groups attacking the same problem - in groups with each group working on a portion, phase or stage of the problem

Actual Work Period : 

Actual Work Period The work may last for a single study period or for days. All works must be recorded for continuity of the task. Those who work fast may be given additional assignment for additional credits. If the work is experimental, no-experimental variables must be constant.

Culminating Activities : 

Culminating Activities Reporting what is worked on by individuals or groups in plenary session of the class. After each report, there is an open forum. Questions, discussions, generalizations, conclusions are made.

Culminating Activity : 

Culminating Activity Different reports may be consolidated into one then photocopies will be given to each member of the class to review and get ready for a test for evaluation.

Sample of The Laboratory Method of Teaching : 

Sample of The Laboratory Method of Teaching Vital Signs Taking Preparation: Review on Vital signs Steps in performing vital signs taking Expected Learning Outcomes Planning

Slide 19: 

Actual Work Period During this period, students will work under the supervision of the teacher. Culminating Activity Students will report the results of the activity.

Other Examples : 

Other Examples COPAR Actual exposure in the Clinical Area Suctioning And in performing other nursing skills
