Slowmation: Helping Students Address their Misconceptions in Physical Science
High school students come to science class with misconceptions that are often difficult to correct. The research suggests that students must address their misconceptions directly in order to correct them (NRC, 2008). It also indicates that students have a difficult time relinquishing their misconceptions because this is how they make sense of their surroundings (Gooding & Metz, 2011).
