The Role of Interest in Learning Science through Stories
Klassen, Stephen; Klassen, Cathrine Froese
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v45 n3-4 p133-151 Nov 2014
A major aspect of the power of a historically based science story derives from its ability to cultivate interest in the reader or listener. In this paper, we review the research on interest originating from diverse scholarly areas and apply it to the understanding, construction, and effective use of science stories in both formal and informal learning environments. Significantly, the raising of interest in science addresses the vital concern of declining engagement with school science, which might be thought of as a decline in interest. Prototype stories and methods to incorporate them are included.
