On the Complex Relation between Cognitive Developmental Research and Children's Science Curricula.
Metz, Kathleen E.
Review of Educational Research, v67 n1 p151-63 Spr 1997
The complex relationship between cognitive developmental research and children's science curricula is explored, focusing on the tendency to attribute shortcomings in performance to the child's age, the confounding of weak knowledge with developmentally based deficiency, and emphasis of stage-based constraints on children's thinking.
