Using the Resources Framework to Design, Assess, and Refine Interventions on Fluids

The resources framework provides a useful and generative model of student thinking and learning. In particular, it suggests various strategies for instruction such as priming resources and refining intuition that allow students to build on knowledge they already have. I will describe the affordances of the resources framework in guiding the design, assessment, and refinement of interventions on pressure in fluids and will indicate how this perspective reveals cognitive resources on which students could build a deeper conceptual understanding, inevitably encouraging us as educators to model student thinking as complex and context dependent (even on this narrow topic). This framework also facilitated a focus on evidence of productivity in student work as an alternative assessment to pre/post testing.
