Power of Reading Through Interfacilitation and the Content Areas.
Kling, Martin
Four stages of development emerging from a review of the history and the research in the content areas are noted: (1) 300 years with little change in the basis for selecting the curriculum content, (2) a call for research during World War I, (3) study groups airing ideas about subject-matter organization in the 1920's and 1930's, and (4) the beginning of empirical studies in the 1940's. Holmes' Substrata-Factor Theory emphasizing the dynamics of the cognitive process is viewed as the fifth stage of development. Key theoretical concepts from the theory as they apply to the content areas are developed. Findings stimulated by the theory are reported and illustrated by two schematic diagrams of the subfactors involved in Power in Reading and English Literature. Implications for further research and teaching are listed, and references are included. (RT)
