Learning More About Learning. Papers from the Third ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) Research Institute.
Frazier, Alexander, Ed.
This booklet contains five papers and reports from the Third Curriculum Research Institute of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development of the National Education Association (Chicago, May 3-7, 1958). The focus of the Institute was upon "Learning: An Area in Need of Study and Research"; its purpose was to draw on research findings in the fields of anthropology, psychology, and communications for the light they might throw on learning problems in school situations. Included are "Learning More about Learning: A Key to Curriculum Improvement" by Alice Miel; "Personality Theory and Its Implications for Curriculum Development" by Arthur W. Combs; "Anthropology and Learning" by Rhoda Metraux; "The Communication Revolution and Learning" by Robert E. Shafer; "Believing and Behaving: Perception and Learning" by Robert E. Bills; and a concluding section by the Institute staff discussing the ideas brought out in the study groups and suggesting ways to use the materials in the booklet as a basis for further study and research.
