Knowledge understanding
The facts The meaning of the facts
A body of coherent facts The “theory” that provides coherence and meaning to those facts
Verifiable claims Fallible, in-process theories
Rightor wrong A matter of degree or sophistication
I know something to be true I understand why it is, what makes it knowledge
I respond on cue with what I know I judge when to and when not to use what I know
