Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Patricia A. Alexander and Jonna M. Kulikowich
This article examines and discusses research findings regarding the degree to which physics texts aid in student's understanding of physics concepts. Findings indicate that teachers' questioning behaviors, inclusion of seductive details, and the incorporation of analogies may influence student learning.
