RIOSECO, Marilú y ROMERO, Ricardo M. The affective dimension as basis for bringing physics teaching into context. Estud. pedagóg. [online]. 1999, n.25, pp. 51-70. ISSN 0718-0705. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07051999000100003.
In the search of a solution to the problem posed to physics teaching by the lack of interest of students, a model for planning teaching units has been developed. It uses contexts as a way to make learning meaningful. The model has different stages; one of those is the identification of the interests' pattern of students, which helps to define the most proper contexts for the different teaching units.
