Learning Counter-Intuitive Science Concepts: What Have We Learned from Over a Decade of Research?
Guzzetti, Barbara J.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v16 n2 p89-98 Apr-Jun 2000
Integrates findings from qualitative and quantitative research in conceptual change that investigated text and text-based strategies. Emphasizes findings that have direct implications for instructional research and practice: (1) refutational text is not sufficient to produce conceptual change; (2) discussion of refutational text must be teacher-guided and text-supported; (3) students prefer refutational text; and (4) only refutational text shows long-term effects.
