Jenkins, Edgar W.
Science and Education, v9 n6 p599-610 Nov 2000
Explores and challenges a number of assumptions and claims commonly associated with a constructivist approach to science education. Suggests that constructivist ideas are noteworthy within primary education because they help justify classroom practices and activities that primary school teachers regard as important. Greater clarity and precision is needed when referring to constructivist ideas in science education. (Author/SAH)
