Berube, Clair T.
Clearing House, v73 n6 p312-15 Jul-Aug 2000
Argues that science should be taught in a conceptual manner in elementary and middle school, after which (and only after) formulas, concrete strategies, and specific, isolated facts should be taught. Discusses linear versus conceptual learning, how boys and girls learn, how middle school teachers can approach this, preparing new science teachers, and alternative thinking models. (SR)
