Thomas, Gregory P.; McRobbie, Campbell J.
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n6 p667-85 Jul 1999
Investigated students' metaphors for themselves as learners in an 11th-grade chemistry classroom. Discovered that students' metaphors were congruent with their views of learning and learning processes as evidenced by multiple data sources. Argues that students' metaphors can provide valuable information for practicing teachers and researchers who aim to investigate and enhance students' learning processes and encourage metacognition. Contains 58 references. (Author/ WRM)
