Summary
"In this simple yet dramatic demonstration of how preconceived ideas can interfere with learning, a bright high school student diagrams her answer to the question, 'Why is it warm in the summer?' She soon learns that her theories, pieced together from elementary school science, are incorrect. Yet even when she is given correct information, she can't let go of the previous ideas in her private universe."--Container
