Paper Abstract

This work reports on a study that was designed to investigate teaching interventions, starting from high school students' misconceptions about vision and light propagation concepts. A standard test was applied to detect these misconceptions and its results obtained were discriminated in categories as a threshold for the organization of teaching. These categories were formulated analogously to the models created in the History (eye, light bath, intermediate and scientific ones). The intervention was elaborated assuming the strategy of conflict or instability of cognitive nature, carried out through debates of open problematic situations. The results acquired after post-testing evaluation reveal that this methodology is quite advantageous owing the confirmation of successful retention learning, through the annihilation of misconceptions and the belief in the scientific model.
