Cognitive Style Mapping and Matching Reading Program Alternatives.
Niagara Falls Board of Education, NY.
Cognitive style mapping enables adult basic education (ABE) teachers to more readily identify a student's cognitive styles, or preferred way of acquiring information, as well as the specific areas where improvement is needed. The procedure prescribes techniques and resources for enhancing both academic skills and interpersonal relationships. The pamphlet is an outcome of a Federally funded project entitled "Identification of Preferred Cognitive Styles and Matching Adult Reading Program Alternatives for the 0-4 Grade Level." It briefly describes the instrument and outlines the procedures. Cognitive styles are surveyed by the presentation of a series of statements which cover all elements of cognitive styles. To accommodate students with varying achievement levels, students can be inventoried with a card reader, audio tape cassette player, or card file. Three areas are explored: (1) symbolic orientations (how information is received), (2) cultural determinants (how information is interpreted), and (3) modalities of inference (how conclusions are drawn about information).
