Abstract Title: Models for seeing colored objects: A case study progression
Abstract: We document the experience of a single participant in a course for secondary teacher professional development in order to track the changes in her thinking about how light interacts with colored objects.  Our two main interests in conducting this analysis are first, to better understand learners' ideas about light and color, and second, to observe changes in learners' thinking as they occur in real-time classroom events.
