Constructivism in Reading Education.
Journal of Special Education, v28 n3 p259-74 Fall 1994
In the development of word recognition skills, self-discovery may not be the most efficacious mode of learning, and it may be useful to isolate or fractionate cognitive components. Successful intervention directed at word recognition involves exogenous constructivism, in which explicit instruction and teacher-directed strategy teaching are not eschewed, especially for children with special needs.
