Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Barbara Guzzetti
Explores the influences of text structure on students' conceptual change. Case studies were conducted and results showed that individuals used refutational text to change their alternative conceptions and acquire new concepts. Findings indicate that refutational text does cause cognitive conflict. While refutational text is effective for groups, it needs to be supplemented by discussion for individuals.
