Abstract

Co-construction and model evolution is described in this chapter as a process of teachers guiding students to enrich their expressed models of a phenomenon. This process occurs when teachers ask students to explain relationships that are present within a student’s expressed model. This chapter provides examples of how teachers can help students construct and express enriched models.
