Managing Problem Solving in the Context of Design and Make Activities: Reflections on Classroom Practice.
Newcomb, Jim
Journal of Design and Technology Education, v5 n2 p126-31 Sum 2000

Doing so enhances understanding of conceptual and procedural knowledge. It also showed how children can be moved toward more expert levels of performance. (SK)
