A Teaching-Learning Sequence of Colour Informed by History and Philosophy of Science
MaurĂ­cio, Paulo; Valente, Bianor; Chagas, Isabel
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v15 n7 p1177-1194 Oct 2017
In this work, we present a teaching-learning sequence on colour intended to a pre-service elementary teacher programme informed by History and Philosophy of Science. Working in a socio-constructivist framework, we made an excursion on the history of colour. Our excursion through history of colour, as well as the reported misconception on colour helps us to inform the constructions of the teaching-learning sequence. We apply a questionnaire both before and after each of the two cycles of action-research in order to assess students' knowledge evolution on colour and to evaluate our teaching-learning sequence. Finally, we present a discussion on the persistence of deep-rooted alternative conceptions.
