Pfundt, H., & Duit, R. (1991). Students' alternative frameworks and science education. Bibliography. 3rd edition. Institut fuer die Pedegogik der Naturwissenschaften and der Universitaet Kiel, Kiel, Germany. (ED 342 643)
Abstract: This bibliography contains some 2,000 articles on empirical investigation and theoretical considerations covering the topic of students' conceptions entered before September 1990. Publications in journals, books, working papers, and contributions to conferences are included. English, German, and French publications, and ones in other languages are contained in the bibliography. The bibliography is divided into nine groups: 1. General considerations concerning research in this area; 2. everyday notions and scientific notions; 3. development of notions in the history of science as compared to the development of notions of individuals; 4. language and notions; 5. methods of investigations; 6. investigations of students' notions; 7. instruction taking students' notions into account; 8. investigations of teachers' notions; and 9. notions and teacher training. The entries include the author's name, year of publication, title, place of publication, and a set of key words that help the reader to categorize the articles. Key words indicate the group of the article (1-9), physics, chemistry, or biology, and further areas or concepts. Articles dealing with conceptions of the teaching and learning process, conceptions of science, conceptions on the use of science for technology and society, and empirical studies in which gender differences are investigated are also indicated by keywords. An author index, an appendix that contains publications added during the preparation of the current edition from October to December 1990, a second appendix that contains entries from another bibliography not listed in the bibliography, and a list of key words are included.
