Some Comments on the Utility of Metaphors for Educational Theory and Practice.
Miller, Steven I.
Educational Theory, v37 n3 p219-27 Sum 1987
This paper examines the specific case in which metaphor is used in an instructional setting as a means of providing explanation. The use of metaphor as a pedagogical technique, it is argued, ought to be analyzed at the level of social and psychological theories that are the underpinnings of practice. (MT)
