Swafford, Jeanne; Bryan, Jan K.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v16 n2 p139-61 Apr-Jun 2000
Proposes that instruction targeted at conceptual change should be designed to consider cognitive development and capitalize on what is known about social development. Examines instructional strategies (Concept Oriented Reading Instruction, Discussion Webs, collaborative writing, learning logs, and divided page journals) that promote middle school students' understandings of counterintuitive science concepts and address their social, cognitive, and physical needs.
