Tsai, Chin-Chung
International Journal of Science Education, v22 n3 p285-302 Mar 2000
Argues for using "conflict maps" as a way of enhancing science teaching and learning. The conflict map emphasizes not only the use of discrepant events, but also the resolution of conflict between students' alternative conceptions and the scientific conception. Discusses the conflict map as an instructional aid for teachers or as a metacognitive tool for learners. (Contains 49 references.) (Author/WRM)
