What Mathemagenic Effects and Cognitive Styles Research Should Mean to the Reading Educator.
Silverston, Randall A.
Learning can be viewed as either a product or a process. The product view suggests that learning is the result of precise manipulations on the part of an instructor. The process position emphasizes that learning originates in the learner as a result of his or her mental and physical manipulations. These two philosophical vantage points have resulted in different forms of research and different forms of teaching practice. This paper discusses two lines of research--mathemagenic effects and cognitive style--which are of import to the reading educator and which are derived from the philosophical positions described above. This discussion provides a basis for describing those factors relevant to increasing the knowledge base concerning reading processes and predicts what reading instruction and reading disability remediation of the future might be like.
