Cognitive Premises and Curriculum Construction.
Noddings, Nel
Two sets of cognitive premises are identified. An attempt is made to state the premises of each set precisely, to draw conclusions, and to explore their implications for curriculum construction. The perspective is that of cognitive psychology, and the idea is to connect certain definite curriculum arrangements to stated cognitive premises. The study employs the methods of conceptual research and uses as its data source the writings of prominent cognitivists. It culminates in specific recommendations for the organization of certain topics in standard curricula and suggestions for the placement and use of "discovery exercises" in the mathematics curriculum.
