Cognitive Approaches to Teaching Advanced Skills to Educationally Disadvantaged Students.
Means, Barbara; Knapp, Michael S.
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n4 p282-89 Dec 1991
Abandoning conventional assumptions about skills hierarchies leads to a new set of curricular principles focusing on complex, meaningful problems, embedding basic skills instruction within more global tasks, and connecting instruction to students' experience and culture. Teachers can then model powerful thinking strategies, encourage multiple problem-solving approaches, and stress dialogue in teaching and learning. (25 references) (MLH)
