This study examines the effects of a group discussion approach, compared with a lecturing approach, on students’ achievements and attitude in the subject of story-telling. In-service teachers enroled in a teacher-training program of study were taught either by the discussion approach or by the lecturing approach. The results indicated, as hypothesized, that the former group attained relatively better performances and generated relatively more positive attitudes about the course. Conjectures on the underlying factors in the effectiveness of the group discussion approach are offered. Copyright © 1994 Author(s).
