Children's Use of Feature Descriptions to Solve Spatial Perspective and Rotation Problems.
Ives, S.W.; Rakow, J.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v53 Pt2 p143-51 Jun 1983
Among young children, verbalization led to many correct responses on a spatial perspective task (indicating views of an object from different positions), but produced few correct responses in a rotation task (imagining different views of a rotating object). Results suggested that language enhances perspective task performance by allowing feature descriptions. (Author/MJL)
