Video Research Project on Understanding

Students come to class with a large number of entrenched, well-developed naive conceptions and knowledge structures. These structures often interfere with what they are taught in school. When we created this project, we selected a topic that has been taught over and over again, but is a myth amplified by textbooks, educators, and social networking.  We then proceeded to document the misunderstandings of the topic.  We created a website, The Tasty Tongue, to document these ideas, along with our research questions, video and findings.
