How Do Students' Views of Science Influence Knowledge Integration?
Journal of Research in Science Teaching Volume 28, Number 9, ISSN 0022-4308
Students' views of science as static, mixed, and dynamic are characterized. The relationship between views of science and acquisition of integrated understanding of thermodynamics is examined. Students with dynamic views acquired more integrated understanding than those with static views. Data were collected from 153 middle school students who followed the Computer as Lab Partner (CLP) curriculum. (KR)
