Teaching Referents and the Warrants Used To Test the Viability of Students' Mental Models: Is There a Link?
Ritchie, Stephen M.; And Others
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v34 n3 p223-38 Mar 1997
Examines which of the warrants of authority, coherence, and empirical evidence were invoked by grade 8 science classroom participants in their daily interactions, and whether these were linked to particular teaching referents. Results indicate that when the teacher embraced a context exposure referent at the expense of constructivism, the warrant of authority dominated interactions. Contains 38 references. (Author/JRH)
