Roald, Ingvild; Mikalsen, Oyvind
International Journal of Science Education, v22 n4 p337-55 Apr 2000
Addresses deaf pupils' conceptions of directly-observed phenomena of the earth and sky. Studies 7-, 9-, 11-, and 17-year-old deaf pupils and uses 9-year-old Norwegian pupils with normal hearing as the control group. Reports that the children's conceptions are scientifically accepted. Indicates that the shape of the sign representing an object may affect a deaf person's conceptions. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/YDS)
