Using General Chemistry to Promote the Higher Level Thinking Abilities.
Pavelich, Michael J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n9 p721-24 Sep 1982
Presents ideas to promote higher-level thinking in general chemistry classrooms/laboratories, focusing on applications of Patricia E. Blosser's taxonomy to enhance students' convergent/divergent/evaluative thinking. Compares Blosser's taxonomy with Bloom and Piagetian taxonomies, suggesting a combined Blosser/Piagetian taxonomy to achieve goals of enhancing higher-level thinking and deepening abilities to reason with formal content.
