Abstract

Vi har lange tradisjoner i Norge for å arbeide praktisk i naturfag, uten at dette ser ut til å bedre elevenes prestasjoner (Kjærnsli, Lie, Olsen, & Roe, 2007). Når elever skal arbeide med teoretiske begreper, i naturfag og andre fag, er det sentralt at de får anledning til å formulere sine forestillinger og sin forståelse av begrepsinnhold og årsakssammenhenger (Mortimer & Scott 2003). Aikenhead (1996) fokuserer også betydningen av språket når elevene skal lære å bruke faglige begreper og derigjennom krysse grensene til det han kaller fagkulturer i skolen.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
