Discussing the Greenhouse Effect: Children's Collaborative Discourse Reasoning and Conceptual Change.
Mason, Lucia; Santi, Marina
Environmental Education Research, v4 n1 p67-85 Feb 1998
Investigates fifth-grade students' conceptual changes toward the greenhouse effect and global warming due to sociocognitive interaction developed in small and large group discussion in an authentic classroom context during an environmental education unit. Classroom discussions led the children to integrate new scientific knowledge into their conceptual ecology based on personal revision of pre-instructional conceptions. Contains 43 references.
