Reading is Thinking.
INSIGHTS into Open Education, v12 n3 Nov 1979
The focus article in this newsletter contains a discussion of the theory of reading as a thinking process and offers practical suggestions for implementing instruction in teaching reading as a thinking process. The section on theory is based on observations of the reading process as perceived by psycholinguists such as Frank Smith and Kenneth Goodman and on the child development theories of Jean Piaget. The article's practical suggestions for teaching sequencing and logical thinking include retelling stories, following recipes, reordering comic frames, making up riddles for logical thinking, creating step-by-step stories, writing how-to books, and planning a trip. The newsletter also includes a list of books written and illustrated by Karla Kuskin, citing publishers and their addresses. (MKM)
