Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Jean-Jacques Dupin and Samuel Johsua
A longitudinal investigation of French pupils, ranging from the start of secondary school (grade 6, 12 years old) to the fourth year of university evaluated whether teachers have an effect on students' preconceptions about basic electricity. The simplest ones disappear with teaching, but other stronger ones ("exhaustion" of current, constant current generator) resist even after many years of teaching. The authors propose that certain misconceptions could be produced by the very way in which pupils overcome the first difficulties they meet, which poses a difficult problem for physics teaching.
