Understanding Scientific Texts: From Structure to Process and General Culture
Ensar, Ferhat; Sallabas, Muhammed Eyyüp
International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n1 p29-34 2016
In this study, the historical development of experimental research on learning processes from scientific texts has been introduced. Then a detailed analysis of the main contributions of cognitive science has been provided and the theoretical developments that are considered to have had a major role in the comprehension and understanding of scientific texts have been dwelled on. Our premise is to determine how development in understanding the basics of the comprehension of scientific text has been achieved and indicate the best way to continue research in the fields in which there has been less development. For this reason, types of theoretical developments required in order to make progress within the framework of learning processes from scientific texts have been included in this analysis. Thus, a contribution will be made in terms of better interpretation of the scientific texts used in environmental and science education. [Note: The citation at the top of the pdf is incorrect.
