Muthukrishna, Nithi; And Others
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v30 n3 p233-48 Mar 1993
Reports a study (n=41) of the effectiveness of in-depth, conceptually integrated instruction delivered via a videodisc program in eliminating children's alternative frameworks in science. This curriculum, which did not directly address alternative frameworks during instruction, changed 92% of the alternative frameworks held by students to scientific understandings. (PR)
