Will students take advantage of opportunities for meaningful science learning?

Charles W. Anderson, Okhee Lee

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

No matter how tightly students' classroom behavior is controlled and guided by teachers and curriculum materials, students always retain personal control over their attention and effort, the authors remind us. Thus effective science instruction must start with understanding students' personal agendas and commitments, as well as their conceptions and learning processes in science.
