Is Teaching a Child to Read Like Teaching a Mouse to Play Basketball?
Rycik, Jim
Ohio Reading Teacher, v30 n3 p25-26 Spr 1996
Compares children's literacy learning to a mouse playing basketball--namely, that children are doing what they have been trained to do, and do not understand the rules of the game. Discusses behaviorist theory in both examples, and contrasts behaviorist theory with constructivist theory. (PA)
