(Mis?)Constructing Constructivism.
Clements, Douglas H.
Teaching Children Mathematics, v4 n4 p198-200 Dec 1997
Discusses misconceptions about constructivism by identifying related myths such as students should always be actively and reflectively constructing, manipulatives make learners active, and cooperative learning is constructivist. One central goal of constructivism should be that students become autonomous and self-motivated in their learning. Constructivism should be a philosophy of learning not a methodology of teaching.
