A Constructivist-Based Model for the Teaching of Dissolution of Gas in a Liquid
Calik, Muammer; Ayas, Alipasa; Coll, Richard K.
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v7 n1 Article 4 Jun 2006
In this article we present details of a four-step constructivist-based teaching strategy, which helps students understand the dissolution of a gas in a liquid. The model derived from Ayas (1995) involves elicitation of pre-existing ideas, focusing on the target concept, challenging students' ideas, and applying newly constructed ideas to similar but related situations. Group work also is a feature of the model, and an appealing feature is that is uses simple, low-cost, material resources. (Contains 1 figure.)
