Parents' Assistance of Their Children's Scientific Reasoning.
Gleason, Mary E.; Schauble, Leona
Cognition and Instruction, v17 n4 p343-78 1999
Examined parents' assistance of preadolescents' scientific reasoning while generating and interpreting a series of trials to understand the causal structure of a complex system. Found that parents assumed most of the difficult conceptual tasks, did not relinquish them over time, and missed opportunities to help children interpret evidence. Parents shared problem solving and engaged in collaborative discussions. (Author/KB)
