Description

Abstract: There are several types methods and materials that teachers use in their instruction. One of the most popular instructional materials are worksheets. Despite this popularity worksheets are often viewed as “busy work:” assignments given to students simply to keep them busy, not to enhance their learning. Is this true? Are worksheets really effective? Perhaps certain types of worksheets are more effective than others, or maybe worksheets in general are ineffective. This is what this research project sought to discover.
