Commentary: The Power of Uncertainty.
MacGinitie, Walter H.
Journal of Reading, v26 n8 p677-83 May 1983
Points out the possible problems that can arise when people are "certain" about something. Suggests that readers need the power of uncertainty, which will allow them to consider new hypotheses, change conceptions, and use knowledge as a framework for constructing meaning, not merely to confirm ideas they already have.
