Learning and Context: An Interview with A. I. Weinzweig, University of Illinois at Chicago Circle, Chicago, Illinois.
O'Brien, Thomas C.
This document is a verbatim transcription of an interview conducted by Thomas C. O'Brien under the auspices of the Teacher's Center Project of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. The transcript presents the views of Professor A. I. Weinzweig for the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle. Distinctions between training and education, and a feeling that much of what American education offers is training for a world that no longer exists, are noted. Ideas about the ways young children learn and solve problems within specific contexts and ideas for teaching that recognize the cognitive nature of children are also presented. (MP)
