Conceptual Change in Elementary School Teacher Candidate Knowledge of Rock-Cycle Processes.
Stofflett, Rene Therese
Journal of Geological Education, v42 n5 p494-500 Nov 1994
Investigates the knowledge of elementary school teacher candidates on rock-cycle processes. Three different instructional interventions were used to improve their knowledge: (1) conceptual-change teaching; (2) traditional didactic teaching; and (3) microteaching. The conceptual-change group showed the most growth in understanding, supporting previous research on the effectiveness of conceptual-change approaches to science instruction. (AIM)
