The Effect of Explaining Another's Actions on Children's Implicit Theories of Balance.
Pine, Karen J.; Messer, David J.
Cognition and Instruction, v18 n1 p35-51 2000
Investigated effects of two instructional interventions on 5- to 9-year-olds who could perform a balance beam task but either could not explain the principle or had naive theories. Found that more students who had observed the experimenter model and were then encouraged to explain what they saw improved performance over the pretest than students who only observed the model.
