Experience and Transfer: Steps to Cognitive Thinking in Young Children.
Nevius, John; Murphy, J. Thomas
This paper argues that it is important to provide children with complementary activities in a horizontal arrangement in order to promote acceleration of vertical levels of thinking. A brief review of literature on the relationship between experience and logical thinking is presented and the definition and function of transfer are discussed. Specific suggestions for teachers on how to facilitate environments that provide mechanisms for the development of problem solving skills are offered in five concept areas: (1) patterning, (2) comparison, (3) categorization, (4) prediction, and (5) hypothesis formation.
