The Van Hiele model (wikipage) "is a theory that describes how students learn geometry."

I would appreciate further insights into the original model, later models that expanded or re-worked it, and the influence of the model on geometric thinking. To this end, my question is:

What are the best expository pieces related to the Van Hiele models?

    $\begingroup$ Wikipedia has a long article---Wikipedia link---with descriptions of the five levels (0,1,2,3,4). $\endgroup$ – Joseph O'Rourke Dec 12 '15 at 19:26

    $\begingroup$ Based on the lack of attention, the link in @JosephO'Rourke's comment, and the initial state of the question, I have overhauled it with a rather strong edit. Please revert the edit (or re-edit) if it gets away from the original intention! $\endgroup$ – Benjamin Dickman Dec 13 '15 at 20:12
  • $\begingroup$ I am not sure if I've understood the question correctly. But, this piece of writing from Pierre Van Hiele himself, was one of the best I read after reading a lot of theoretical pieces about "their" work $\endgroup$ – Amir Asghari Dec 17 '15 at 22:34
