Learning and Instruction: An Examination of Four Research Perspectives in Science Education.
Eylon, Bat-Sheva; Linn, Marcia C.
Review of Educational Research, v58 n3 p251-301 Fall 1988
Recent research in science education examines learning from four foci: (1) concept learning; (2) developmental; (3) differential; and (4) problem-solving. These perspectives provide a framework for identifying mechanisms of change in knowledge/thinking processes. In-depth coverage of several science topics may benefit students more than fleeting coverage of many. (SLD)
