Advance Organizers as a Teaching Strategy: A Reply to Barnes and Clawson
Lawton, Joseph T.; Wanska, Susan K.
Review of Educational Research, 47, 2, 233-44, Spr 77
Barnes and Clawson's presentation of Ausubel's theory of meaningful learning (Review of Educational Research, 45, 1975, pp. 637-59) is misleading, according to the author. He states that Ausubel's crucial point is not that organizers relate new knowledge to an existing cognitive structure, but that new learning materials can only be considered potentially meaningful.
