Beyond Location: Understanding How to Understand Scientific Thinking in the School Library Media Program.
Povhe, Thomas J.
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v7 n9 p29-30 May 1991
Discussion of several modes of understanding in the cognitive approach to information processing focuses on heuristic (discovery-based) scientific understanding. Topics covered include how students seeking heuristic understanding in a process-oriented school library media program look at information, use preconceptions to guide their searches, infer theories, and seek confirmation through experimentation and application.
