Reflections on "Scientific Reasoning of Students with Mild Mental Retardation: Investigating Preconceptions and Conceptual Change."
Scruggs, Thomas E.; Mastropieri, Margo A.
Exceptionality, v5 n4 p249-57 1994-95
Perspectives that underlie a study of scientific reasoning of elementary students with mild mental retardation (EC 612 096) are provided. Epistemological issues that appear to shape knowledge of special education are addressed, specifically "constructivism" versus "behaviorism" and the relative worth of "constructed" versus "instructed" knowledge.
