Cognitive Process Instruction. Research on Teaching Thinking Skills.
Lochhead, Jack, Ed.; Clement, John, Ed.
A conference in June 1978 brought together approximately 50 faculty from various American universities to discuss issues related to cognitive process instruction. This book contains the papers from that conference, focusing on recent, innovative approaches to cognitive process instruction and recent research studies on thinking skills that have direct implications for such instruction. The research papers concern both methodology and studies on proportional reasoning, information processing, and problem solving. The teaching approaches concern general thinking skills, teaching science, and teaching mathematics. (MNS)
