Constraints or Guideposts? Developmental Psychology and Science Education.
Kuhn, Deanna
Review of Educational Research, v67 n1 p141-50 Spr 1997
Kathleen Metz has suggested that application of theories of developmental psychology to children's science instruction has led to underestimation of children's competence and potential. This review proposes use of developmental psychology as a guidepost rather than a constraint in developing science curricula. (SLD)
