I find discovery-learning fad to be more beneficial in my life. As a psychologist, discovery learning has contributed to my constructivist and inquiry-based approach towards an explanation, prediction, description and in controlling mental processes and behaviors of others. Significantly, this learning approach has helped me during problem-solving situations whereas in different occasions; I had to draw on the experiences and the existing knowledge to discover relationships and facts as well as new truths cultured. Hence, in my field of specialization, I find discovery-learning fad very beneficial as it is responsible for discovering the cause-effect relationship of various psychological problems and dilemmas (Leonard, 2002).

Discovery learning helps towards interacting with people and the world in general by an exploration and in the manipulation of objects, which enables one to wrestle with questions as well as controversies while performing some psychological experiments. In the event, this learning approach helps one to remember knowledge and concepts discovered by self (Leonard, 2002). Therefore, through discovery learning, I have developed strong Meta-cognitive skills as well as high level of inductive inquiry. Considerably, discovery learning fad has always satisfied my natural human curiosity and promoted individual interest in the understanding of why and how things happen the way they do.

Therefore, I support learning that involves an active engagement of the learner in the learning process. I believe that when one participates, it is easier for one to pay more attention, which enables one to personalize the learning experience (Leonard, 2002). For instance, learning different types of mental disorders through a study of the mentally challenged people, looking at the way they behave and communicate; enables a student of Psychology to grasp the learning experience, as in the process, they get a chance to discover something for themselves.
