MOURA DA SILVA, Osmar Henrique; NARDI, Roberto y LABURU, Carlos Eduardo. A study about students' conceptual development on heath and temperature due to the application of a teaching strategy inspired by Lakatos' theory. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc.

We report here a study about the application of a formal teaching strategy about heat and temperature concepts applied among high school students. The strategy belongs to a research trend which deals with epistemological analogies and has an innovative character related to the students' preparation for rational debates between conceptions and/or rival theories, using didactical rational reconstruction (DRR) which aims to help scientific concepts rational learning. We investigate the outcomes of this preparation and students' conceptual development, analyzed through a qualitative-interpretative methodological approach.
