Productive Thinking in Education.
Aschner, Mary Jane, Ed.; Bish, Charles E., Ed.
This publication is composed of a collection of articles based on the ideas produced and presented at two conferences on productive thinking. Intended, overall, to introduce new concepts of intellectual abilities, the book is divided into four parts: Part I describes a considerable amount of the significant research in "Intelligence and Its Development" and contains articles by Guilford, Ausubel, and Ojemann. Part II (with articles by Alpert, Caron, and MacKinnon) attempts to bridge the gap between current research and classroom teaching in this area of intellectual development. Part III extends the review of research of Part I and contains articles by Torrance and Barron. Part IV provides an overall consideration of productive thinking in the educational process as viewed by Taylor, Passow, and Goldberg. (WD)
