Teaching for Logical Thinking Is a Prereading Activity.
Nevius, John R., Jr.
The research findings of Siegel, Wohlwill, Goodman, and others suggest that reading is a thinking skill which may be facilitated by the instruction of transferable problem-solving skills. In order to maximize learning in young children, it is important to provide opportunities which allow the exchange of information and concepts from one activity to another. Classroom exercises are outlined which illustrate the basic concepts perceived as essential to the development of reading skills (patterning, comparison, classification, prediction, and hypothesis). Suggestions are included for manipulation of the classroom environment to provide centers for the instruction of these basic concepts. (KS)
