Learning New Concepts Independently through Metaphor.
Flynn, Linda L.; And Others
Reading Improvement, v32 n4 p200-19 Win 1995
Investigates how metaphor influences a reader's ability to recall information about new concepts, assimilate new concepts into existing conceptual structures, and accommodate new concepts by creating new conceptual structures. Offers support for metaphor as an instructional device for formal reasoners. Suggests that metaphor may interfere with learning for concrete reasoners and possibly preoperational reasoners as compared to literal language. (RS)
