Who Reasons Well? Two Studies of Informal Reasoning among Children of Different Grade, Ability, and Knowledge Levels.
Means, Mary L.; Voss, James F.
Cognition and Instruction, v14 n2 p139-78 1996
Two experiments examined the relationship between reasoning skills, student grade, ability, and knowledge levels. Findings were interpreted in terms of a two-component model: a knowledge-experiential component and the conventions of reasoning. Results indicated that consideration of the relation of reasoning to learning and to instruction emphasized the importance of teaching informal reasoning skills. (MOK)
