Energy, motion, and matter are all integrally related concepts that should be understood by an educated society as these concepts are the fundamental building blocks in understanding the world. Purpose. This study investigated the effects of recall of past experiences by eighth grade students on student's identification with abstract physical science concepts. These effects were manipulated in two ways- (1) type of reading narrative and (2) specific recall directions contained within the reading narratives. [...]
