      Hi. I found a book entitled "Targeting Students' Science Misconceptions:
      Physical Science Concepts Using the Conceptual change Model", but it is
      listed for grades 9 - 12. It also have only 232 pages instead of 246 pages.
      Is the book you are referring to a different one, maybe for middle school
