Cognitive Science: The Science Of The (Nearly) Obvious 

written by Bruce L. Sherin

This article discusses the need for a "grand theory" of physics cognition and learning. The idea of the grand theory is that it would be a complete description of the knowledge students possess and how that changes over time, from before instruction, all the way through expertise. The first part of the paper discusses our current state of knowledge and possible strategies for making progress on the grand theory. The second part of the paper illustrates, with an example, how the program might work.
