What Happened to the Sixth Graders: Are Elementary Students Losing Their Need to Forecast and to Reason?
Stabb, Claire
Reading Psychology, v7 n4 p289-96 1986
Shows that sixth-grade students did not use as much oral language for forecasting and reasoning as did third-grade students or students in kindergarten when their language was recorded under similar conditions. Suggests that perhaps the very process of schooling inhibits students' need to think creatively and to reason. (FL)
