Roth, Wolff-Michael; Tobin, Kenneth
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v33 n2 p135-57 Feb 1996
Uses videotaped lectures and interviews to understand lectures in a physics course for prospective elementary teachers. Reports that the professor staged Aristotle, natural philosophy, and students' observations and intuitive knowledge in opposition to Galileo, controlled experiments, and mathematical inscriptions. Concludes that this form of instructional delivery does not help students become proficient in physics discourse. Contains 52 references. (Author/JRH)
