|Title:||Using Analogies to Increase Student Interest in Science||Contributor(s):||Taylor, Neil (author) ; Coll, Richard K (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2566||Abstract:||• Much of our thinking is done in pictures, and even young students have vivid imaginations that help them see objects, stories, and situations in their mind's eyes. • Adults and students enjoy making sense of new situations by seeing problems and scenarios in everyday terms. • An additional value of analogy and analogies is that they are often used to raise interest in stories and jokes. • Learning about nonobservable phenomena in science is enhanced when we can see and think about objects and processes in terms of everyday objects and events.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Using Analogies in Middle and Secondary Science Classrooms, p. 32-45||Publisher:||Corwin Press||Place of Publication:||Thousand Oaks, California||ISBN:||9781412913331
