Acquisition of Conservation Through Cognitive Dissonance
Murray, Frank B.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 5, 519-27, Oct 77
Primary school children at different stages of acquisition of conservation pretended that their judgments on a series of conservation problems were the opposite of their actual beliefs. The nonconservers and transitional conservers made significant gains in conservation, while the conservers did not regress. Cognitive dissonance training is discussed. (Author/GDC)
