Glenn, Allen D.; Ellis, Arthur K.
Social Education, v46 n2 p134-36 Feb 1982
Describes an experiment which compared the effectiveness of explicit instruction in problem-solving methods to an indirect, guided-discovery approach upon stimulus-bound and stimulus-free thinkers in the third and fourth grades. Findings suggest that logical problem solving is best taught using explicit instructions for both types of thinkers. (AM)
