Proceedings of the Lake Arrowhead Conference on Learning from Text, April 14-16, 1982.
Singer, Harry, Ed.; Bean, Tom, Ed.
These conference proceedings report on and review the Learning from Text Project activities that started in the fall of 1980, and by the end of the second year had expanded to three University of California (UC) and six California State University (CSU) campuses. Following a summary of the conference proceedings, an introduction describes the background of the project, which was developed in an attempt to study how college students interact with written text in their course materials in order to construct meaning from that text. This is followed by a report on learning from text in a classroom situation and a report of the CSU-Fullerton project. Next, three faculty members from the UC-Riverside campus provide three simultaneous seminars on learning from text at the university level. This is followed by reports on teaching strategies for learning from text. A description of the UC-Davis project is then followed by descriptions of collateral research projects on nine campuses.
