"Is Heat Hot?" Inducing Conceptual Change by Integrating Everyday and Scientific Perspectives on Thermal Phenomena.
Wiser, Marianne; Amin, Tamer
Learning and Instruction, v11 n4-5 p331-55 Aug-Oct 2001
Studied the process of conceptual change among four high school students as they studied thermal physics, focusing on the role of metaconceptual teaching. The pedagogical success demonstrated for integrating scientific and everyday views is consistent with the difficulties young adolescents experience dealing with a relativistic epistemology in which scientific and everyday views are presented as valid alternatives.
