Overview

The V diagram was invented by Gowin (Cornell U.) in 1977, as a heuristic device for analyzing knowledge claims of science. Here he and Alvarez (teaching and learning, Tennessee State U.) explain how V diagrams can be used effectively by teachers, students, parents, administrators and their staff, and others. The computer-formatted program was developed and tested for over eight years in the Exploring Minds Project at Tennessee State. They begin by setting out the commonplaces and complexities of educating. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
